'Fired Up' Across the County



Local galleries are “on fire,” showcasing a plethora of ceramics exhibitions and reveling in the international attention generated by the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference to be held in Providence later this month. From Rough Point to the Jamestown Arts Center to dual shows at Salve Regina University, no aspect of the medium is left unexplored in area shows. Exhibits reflect influences from prehistoric to contemporary, and works utilize techniques ranging from the tried-and-true to recent innovations. Pictured are Lee Segal, lifelong studio potter, and Valorie Sheehan, sculptural ceramicist, whose works are featured in the DeBlois Gallery display, ongoing through March 29. See the Calendar and Arts pages for more information.
