A Visit To Plinth Gallery
Last Monday, Memorial Day I drove down to Denver to deliver some work to Plinth Gallery. This Friday (June 4) is the opening of Jen Allen’s show (see her interview below) and the third anniversary of the gallery. For the festivities Jonathan Kaplan, Plinth’s owner asked if I would bring a few pieces down for the celebration. I’m delighted to have work as part of the birthday, and thrilled to be having a show at Plinth in the fall of 2011!!! Here is Jonathan in the back room of the gallery with my work. If you're following the interviews Jonathan was interviewed on my blog in February. If you missed his interview click here. Saturday was a big delivery day, Laura from DIA (Denver International Airport) met me at Plinth to pick up the rest of the commission. It felt really good to get it finished and delivered. It was a lot of late nights making pots for them. (I will post images of the pots in the next post.) They will be on display in the offices of DIA, until they are given to Mayor Hickenlooper and the Denver City Council in July. I’ve been told that they will send pictures of the event. I’ll post them on the blog when I get them. Another view of the back room of the gallery and Jonathan. I love the built in shelving for the mugs and cups, a potter’s dream. Plinth is the only gallery dedicated solely to ceramics in the Denver and Front Range region of Colorado. It is located in the River North Art District (Rino), which is Denver’s new and fast growing art area. A view of a very small part of Hayne Bayless’ show and work, and the front of gallery. Also a few pots made by Lisa Pedolsky, who is going to have an interview on the blog soon. I wanted to get more pictures of the gallery, but these guys were waiting soooooo patiently to go to the Denver Zoo. I was rushed with the pictures. We had a great day at the zoo, with my friend Sherry and her kids. It was so fun to watch the kids discover the animals. And I got to use my new found knowledge of exotic animals, from my extensive studies of Go Diego Go, The Wonder Pets, and Dora the Explorer.
