Cirque du Leigh

Our Department Chair (and ceramics prof) Sheri Leigh has some work in a couple upcoming shows. Via Sheri, here’s the info:




“Dry Run” (above) is going to the “Soldner Society” exhibit, which I co-curated with T Robert. It will be in Tampa, FL in conjunction with the NCECA conference. The show is intended to honor the life of Paul Soldner, who passed away this year on January 3rd.

Here’s the info from the NCECA Exhibition tours site:

This exhibition is intended to honor Paul Soldner who was a great mentor and inspiration to so many successful ceramists. He was one of the founding fathers of contemporary ceramics, and Raku. His lifestyle influenced and forever changed everyone he met. Paul taught by example as he worked in the Scripps studio alongside his students. Often when asked how he thought some technique would work, he would respond, “Try it, and let me know what happens”. His open lifestyle freed a new generation of ceramic artists to experiment and live life to it’s fullest. Organized by Sheri Leigh O’Connor and T Robert.

Above Shows: Mar 29-Apr 2. Tue-Thu 10am-7pm; Fri 10am-8pm; Sat 10am-5pm. Reception Apr 1, 5-8pm


The other piece “Zebran Nuptials” or “Here Comes the Zebran” is going into “Top That.”
