Regis Master: Jun Kaneko
NCC hosted Jun Kaneko as its 25th Regis Master. Kaneko is one of two ceramic artists awarded this title in 2012. The other, Richard Shaw, visited NCC in May for a lecture and an exhibition. The Regis Masters Series began in 1997 and continues to recognize ceramic artists, over the age of 65, who have had a major impact on the development of ceramics in the last century and this century. The artists bestowed with the title of Regis Master are from this country and from across the world. They receive an honorarium, participate in an exhibition at NCC, and deliver a lecture about their life and work. In doing so, they add to the limited stock of oral history of a senior generation of ceramic artists. We are very pleased to add Jun Kaneko to this distinguished group of Regis Master artists.

The Regis Masters Series is made possible by a generous grant from Regis and Friends. The lectures are co-sponsored by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
