2014 Regis Master: Adrian Saxe
Adrian Saxe was Northern Clay Center’s 26th Regis Master; he was one of two ceramic artists bestowed with the title in 2014. The other, Walter Ostrom, was featured in an exhibition in fall of 2014. The Regis Masters Series began in 1997, and honors senior artists who have had a major impact on the development of 20th and 21st century ceramics. The Regis Masters Series was originally supported by Regis and Friends and continues today through generous support from Anita Kunin and the Kunin Family, in honor of the late Myron Kunin, a philanthropist and former owner of the Regis Corporation.
The exhibition included a survey of work from Saxe’s long career in clay (with new work too). Adrian Saxe added his story to a limited oral history of a senior generation of ceramic artists on Saturday, June 21, at 2 pm, with a free public lecture at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, in the Pillsbury Auditorium. The lecture was co-sponsored by The Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Works in the exhibition were made possible by Adrian Saxe and Frank Lloyd Gallery (Santa Monica, CA).
