Rogue Potters announce new ceramics show at Modus Locus

Rogue Potters roguepotters.com, a collective of ceramic artists originating in Minnesota, will be exhibiting new work at “UFOs Land Here”. The show coincides with the March 2019 conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) at which over 5000 attendees from all over the world are expected.

Modus Locus Gallery (3500 Bloomington Ave S. Minneapolis, MN 55407) will host the show March 23- 31 with a sale March 23, 12-8pm and reception March 29, 5-9pm.

“UFOs Land Here” celebrates the convergence of artists and their work fired in a kiln set atop an ancient volcanic basalt dome in Taylors Falls, MN. Visitors will have the opportunity to examine place as a driver for connection of people and aesthetics through the work of eleven artists firing one kiln over three decades. The kiln is a place of confluence; where artists, makers, educators and more find an environment that generates a fertile energy and creative ecosystem to land within. The exhibition will include a range of ceramic works and ephemera to engage aid viewers in understanding the setting of the kiln and its orbiting community.
