Crafting a Continuum: Rethinking Contemporary Craft

January 30, 2014 – April 27, 2014

Anne Drew Potter has a new piece called “The Sad Kings” on exhibit at the Bellevue Art Museum in conjunction with the traveling exhibit from Arizona State University.

Here’s her email announcing the exhibit.


I am pleased to share the news that my newest work, “The Sad Kings” is now on exhibit at the Bellevue Arts Museum in conjunction with the “Crafting a Continuum” exhibition, put together by the Arizona State University Museum of Art.

A reception will be held March 6 at the Bellevue Arts Museum, please spread the word. See more information below.

Additionally, see the November/December issue of New Ceramics, The European Ceramic Magazine, for an image of my work “Rotkäppchen, Schneeweißchen, Rosenrot, Aschenputtel, und Rapunzel wären gern Revolutionärinnen gewesen, aber sie sind auf der falschen Seite der Mauer gelandet,” which was awarded one of four prizes in the recent exhibition “Figurativ/The Figure: Sculpture in Ceramics” at the Westerwald Museum.

TheSadKings1-AnneDrewPotter

“This piece has a relatively simple narrative compared with some of my works.  Among the few belongings my dad left behind when he died in 2012 were many photographs he made as a young man involved in the theatre.  In one of them a young, slightly melancholy actor wearing a makeshift crown stares hauntingly into the camera, possibly from a production of “King Lear” or “Oedipus.”  This picture inspired the work “The Sad Kings,” a meditation on the discomfort we can feel in our own skins.” – anne drew potter
