    For more than 60 years, Karen Karnes has been at the forefront of the studio pottery movement. Her artistic output is recognized for its understated, quietly poetic surfaces and sublime biomorphic forms. From her dramatic salt-glazed pottery of the 1960s and '70s, to her most recent sculptural vessels, Karnes consistently has challenged herself, and in doing so transformed expectations of the vessel form. She remains one of the medium's most influential working makers and a mentor to several generations of studio potters. This exhibition is her first major retrospective and will highlight 69 masterworks from this pioneering artist.
