A CAPE COD POTTERS JURIED EXHIBITION
December 15, 2021 - March 13, 2022
Celebrating 50 Years!
TERRA FORM: A Cape Cod Potters Juried Exhibition reveals the diversity of exceptional ceramic objects, both functional and non-functional, created by members of the Cape Cod Potters.
55 objects were selected for the exhibition by James Lawton, former professor of Ceramics and Chair of the Artisanry Department at UMass Dartmouth.
The Cape Cod Museum of Art invited the Cape Cod Potters to exhibit at the Museum in celebration of the group's 50th anniversary, which coincides with CCMoA's 40th. Remarkably, both non-profit organizations owe their existence in part to the same man – sculptor, potter and visionary, Harry Holl (1922-2014).
One of the founders of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, Harry was also instrumental in founding the Cape Cod Potters (or the Cape Cod Cooperative as it was initially named). CCP was formed to promote the professional growth of potters and cooperation between craftspeople on Cape Cod.
It is fitting that Cape Cod Museum of Art and the Cape Cod Potters celebrate their anniversaries together with this exhibition.
