Smart Bets: Serendipity

"I am particularly interested in how various artists have adapted the wood-fire patina to their own sculptural work," writes local ceramist Eric Knoche in his curator statement for Serendipity. The international exhibition, held at Crimson Laurel Gallery in Bakersville, includes work by nine American artists, as well as Neil Hoffmann from Australia, Nina Hole and Ann-Charlotte Ohlson from Denmark, Koichiro Isezaki from Japan and Michal Puszczynski from Poland. The show runs from Saturday, June 30 through Friday, Aug. 31. The Saturday, July 7 opening includes a presentation by ceramic sculptor Peter Callas at 5 p.m. (RSVP by June 30) and an artist reception at 6 p.m. Photo of work by Peter Callas.
