McKnight Ceramics Exhibit

Winona State University will host the McKnight Ceramics Exhibition through Friday, Oct. 16 in the Paul Watkins Gallery.

The exhibition will feature ceramic art made by McKnight Award winners. The McKnight award in ceramics is a very prestigious award given to two Minnesota ceramic artists and residencies awarded to four international artists each year.

The exhibit will feature six artists: Kelly Connolle, Kip O’Krongly, Claudia Alvarez, Sanam Emami and Sarah Heimann.

Andy Shaw, the current artist resident, will speak at WSU from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, in Stark 103. There will be a reception at the gallery from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Shaw earned his MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and his BA in History from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. His tableware has received multiple awards, is shown widely across the US, and has been published in Studio Potter, Ceramics Monthly, Ceramics: Art and Perception, and Garth Clark’s book, Shards.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
