NCECA Providence

I’m winding down a work cycle in my studio as pots are due soon for several shows at NCECA, the annual clay conference this year in Providence, RI. Some shows are already open, and others are only up the few days of the conference. If you live in New England, and/or are attending NCECA, I wanted to let you know where you can see and purchase my work.

At the Rhode Island Convention Center, the actual conference site, I’ll have numerous pots at the EXPO with 18 Hands Gallery (which does not require a pass, so is free), open Tues eve, March 24th thru Fri afternoon, March 27th. I’ll also have some pots in the new POW!: Pots on Wheels truck, which will be parked just outside the convention center.

Place setting NCECA

Just three blocks from the Convention Center, I’ll have a place setting (pictured) in Santa Fe Clay’s annual invitational La Mesa exhibition at the United Methodist Church, 134 Mathewson Street, Providence, Wed, March 25th thru early Sat, March 28th (though by Saturday, purchased pieces start to go to their owners).

Kristen Kieffer Teapot PeriwinkleAbout 5 miles from the Convention Center, I will have a teapot (pictured) and teapot-stamped cup in an exhibition called Apprenticelines, which celebrates mentors John Glick (1996-97 for me), Mark Shapiro, Mark Hewitt, Simon Levin, and Sylvie Granatelli, and their past assistants and apprentices. This exhibition is at The Pawtucket Armory Art Center, 172 Exchange St, Pawtucket, open Wed, March 25th thru Sat, March 28th. The opening reception is Fri, 6-9 PM.

I also have work in three Massachusetts exhibitions, each about 35 miles from the Convention Center in different directions:

About an hour northeast of Providence, I have a vase (pictured) in The State of Clay: Pushing Boundaries exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum, 455 Oak Street, Brockton, MA. This exhibition is open March 7 – May 24.

Kieffer Grande jar at New Bedford Art MuseumAbout 35 minutes southeast of Providence, I have a grande jar (pictured during the show’s install) in the In Residence exhibition, one of four concurrent shows celebrating the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, at the New Bedford Art Museum, 608 Pleasant St, New Bedford, MA (near UMass Dartmouth). This exhibition is open Jan 30 – April 3.

Lastly, about 50 minutes northwest of the conference, I have several larger pieces (one pictured below) in the Looking Back exhibition in the Krikorian Gallery at the Worcester Center for Crafts, 25 Sagamore Rd, Worcester, which celebrates eleven of its past artists-in-residence (2001-03 for me). This exhibition is open March 12 – April 11.

  2. Hi Kristen,

    A minor correction-La Mesa show is about 3 blocks from convention center, not 4 miles.

    See you there.
    Your work looks great.

  3. Hi Kristin – stunning and diverse as usual!! The top blue vase is exquisite. I have a vase collection and this form makes me think of a Napoleon III vase in aqua glass that I have. But the base is 3 thin legs on a flat 3-lobed base.
    Your fan, Susan C. Burghes
