Regis Master: Richard Shaw
“Having to come up with new stuff all the time keeps me alive.”
— Richard Shaw
Richard Shaw, Northern Clay Center’s 24th Regis Master, was one of two ceramic artists bestowed with this title in 2012. The other, Jun Kaneko, was featured in an exhibition later in 2012. The Regis Masters Series began in 1997 and honors senior artists, over the age of 65, who have had a major impact on the development of 20th century—now 21st century—ceramics. Shaw added to an oral history of a senior generation of ceramic artists on Saturday, May 26, at 2 pm, with a free public lecture at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
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.
