The Mondale Collection
Opening Reception: Friday, May 15, 6 – 8 pm (On view beginning May 9)
In honor of the late Joan Mondale, and her long-time passion and advocacy for the arts, Northern Clay Center presented an exhibition of works from the ceramics collection of the Mondale family and pieces made by Mrs. Mondale herself. A founding member of Northern Clay Center, Mrs. Mondale spent a great deal of time working with her mentor, Warren MacKenzie, developing a love of Japanese-style pottery, which influenced both her making and collecting. Mrs. Mondale’s inspired interest resulted, over the decades, in an exemplary collection of Japanese and American ceramics, which NCC is proud to exhibit with the support of her family and the institutions that are now home to her artistic legacy.
