with 2 comments

Adrian Saxe_2011_A copy2014 is going to be a busy year for Adrian Saxe! To begin, Saxe’s artwork will be featured in the 70th Scripps Ceramic Annual, opening on January 25th at the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery. The Ceramics Annual is the longest-running exhibition of contemporary ceramics in the United States, and this year it presents works by artist curators who have previously participated. The Annual has historically been organized by artists, and this year’s theme honors their contributions. The show will be on display from January 25th – April 6th, 2014.

Saxe will also participate in a panel discussion including Wendell Castle and Janet Koplos at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston on February 22nd, for the opening of Beyond Craft: Decorative Arts from the Leatrice S. and Melvin B. Eagle Collection. The Eagles gifted their collection to the MFAH in 2010, and this exhibition is the first to draw extensively from it. It will remain on view through May 26th, 2014.

Finally, Adrian Saxe will be honored as a FSE035_A copyRegis Master for 2014 at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Regis Masters Series honors senior artists who have had a major impact on the development of 20th and 21st century ceramics. Since the early 1980’s, Saxe has sought to reinvent, and bring up-to-date, a role for ceramic art that employs decorative art conventions to mirror, comment upon, and redirect social and cultural expectations. Furthermore, his longstanding position as Professor of Ceramics at the University of California, Los Angeles has allowed him to foster the development of countless ceramics students.
