Duck, Duck, Grey Duck is the uniquely Minnesotan name for the childhood game called Duck, Duck, Goose in every other region around the country. Likewise, in the ceramics community, no matter the title, some things are inherently the same across regions. Ceramics, ceramist, pottery, potter, claywork, and maker are all words employed to describe the artists working and the objects made inn the community of clay. No matter the moniker, the reality in each of our Midwest states is the same: There is incredible diversity and talent among ceramic artists in our region. This exhibition celebrates the regionally unique field of ceramics and highlights over a dozen makers from the area who push the boundaries of the material, honor the unparalleled lineage of ceramics in the Midwest and expand the viewers’ understanding of the importance of this area’s place in the world of clay.

The “Duck, Duck, Grey Duck” exhibit is on display now through September 2019 in the Thomson Reuters Main Mall Gallery in Terminal 1.
