Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle presents Art and Industry: Collaboration and Revelation

On Monday, May 9, at 1:15 p.m., at the Bruce Museum, the Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle presents Art and Industry: Collaboration and Revelation, a lecture by Kristin Plucar, Arts/ Industry Residency Coordinator, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Founded in 1974 by Kohler Co. and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center as a one-month experiment to open new opportunities for extraordinary artists, Arts/Industry has influenced generations of ceramic artists through access to industrial ceramic materials, processes, and technical assistance. Each year approximately 16 artists worldwide are selected from a pool of hundreds for two- to six-month residencies that transform their interests, give them fresh ways of thinking, and introduce new technologies into their studio practices and university curricula.

Kristin Plucar is the Arts/Industry residency coordinator at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI, a position she has held since 2013. Plucar received a BA in art with an emphasis in ceramics and a minor in Japanese language from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and a MFA with a concentration in drawing from Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho. Plucar is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including two Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowships. She has participated in residency programs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Japan. In addition to her work with the Arts/Industry program, she creates drawings inspired by personal history and daily experience.

Admission for non-members of the Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle is $25. For information: ctcsc.org.
