THe Beauty of function | the mary and bruno moser collection

October 18, 2015 - January 3, 2016

Come celebrate the aesthetics of the utilitarian vessel. Beauty is sometimes overlooked in the objects we use every day and this exhibition will feature the inherent fine art nature in these every day works.

A few key artists:

Warren MacKenzie, Maren Kloppmann, Christa Assad, Jan McKeachie-Johnston, Sam Chung, Suze Lindsay, Sequoia Miller, and Jeff Oestreich.

The exhibition comes from Mary and Bruno Moser of West Lafayette, Indiana, who have collected pottery for over 50 years and are recognized connoisseurs in the field.
