Surface detail on ceramic, Jim Neupert

The word “serendipity” comes from a Persian fairy tale called “The Three Princes of Serendip”. In the story, the princes set out to explore their world, making discoveries by accident, of things they were not in quest of. In this show Winthrop Gallery artists Pearl Cherrington, Jim Neupert and Susannah Young explore the creative process from the perspective of experimentation and chance.

Pearl Cherrington presents mixed media pieces using photographs with watercolors and acrylics. Jim Neupert’s work explores surface treatments on one-of-a-kind ceramic pieces. Fiber artist Susannah Young says, “Often what I start out on has little relation to what I end up with but the process of discovery makes the whole journey exciting.”

A reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday August 8, from 5 to 7pm. Refreshments will be served.
