LUSH: A Contemporary Ceramics Exhibition

Through Saturday, January 4, 2020
Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery

To celebrate the success of Lighthouse ArtCenter's Director of Ceramics, Chad Steve, and the booming and expanding Ceramics Department, the ArtCenter is hosting LUSH: A Contemporary Ceramics Exhibition in the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery from November 11, 2019 – January 4, 2020.  Janeen Mason, the curator, created a nationwide call to artists for this exhibit and the result is a selection of work that is fluid and enthusiastic and guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning collector. Over 500 pieces were considered by the jury, but only 109 pieces were selected to show.  The artwork comes from artists as far away as Japan, and as close as down the street.  

On Thursday, November 21, 2019, during the artists' reception which is open to the public, Alex Zablocki, the esteemed judge from Fort Collins, Colorado, will announce his selection of winners from the juried entrants who will share four monetary awards that total $3,500. 

Of great interest to collectors is an important selection of original Lettuceware that is featured in the west gallery where a retrospective exhibition celebrates the original ceramic works of Dodie Thayer, most well known for her iconic green table ware evocative of crinkly heads of cabbage, and one of the founding members of the Lighthouse ArtCenter in 1964. Lettuceware collectors read like the Who's Who of society from around the globe. They include the Queen of England, Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Oprah Winfrey, to name a few.  Mrs. Marshal Field V is loaning two of her large soup tureens for the exhibition, while Mrs. Thayer's daughter is pulling pieces from the family's treasures which have never before been shown.  They are invaluable.
