Earth and Water: A Ceramic Art Workshop and Willem Gebben Exhibition at The Phipps

An exhibition of Willem Gebben's work is  on view at The Phipps through February 9 as part of a three-year exhibition partnership between Northern Clay Center and The Phipps in Hudson, WI. This project is aimed at increasing the profile of ceramic artists located throughout the lower St. Croix River Valley watershed. This cross-state collaboration will feature two to three ceramic artists annually, in the Atrium Gallery at The Phipps. In addition, featured artists will present a public program (lecture/workshop/class) to take place at The Phipps. NCC invites its constituents to “cross the border” to visit these exhibits and join select staff at the artist receptions.
