Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia have a long history of achievement in ceramics, including folk pottery, commercial ware, and sculptural work. After the collapse of the Soviet Union brought independence and democracy to all three nations, ceramic artists responded to their new freedom by moving beyond skillful but guarded creations to more adventurous approaches. NCC’s exhibition highlights these dramatic new efforts in ceramics with the introduction of nine contemporary makers from across the three countries, who represent the full spectrum of making, age, and education. Participating artists include, from Estonia: Kris Lemsalu, Leo Rohlin, and Anne Türn; from Latvia: Diana Boitmane, Dainis Pundurs, and Juta Rindina; and from Lithuania: Ieva Bertašiūtė-Grosbaha, Danutė Jazgevičiūtė, and Egidijus Radvenskas.

This exhibition was previously on view at NCC in fall of 2018, but will be re-imagined in conjunction with NCECA.

Opening reception: Thursday, March 28, 5 – 9 pm
