BOSTON, MASS. – Through August 10, JMW Gallery will exhibit more than 100 objects from the Arts and Crafts movement by four of the period’s prominent potteries: Grueby, Marblehead, Dedham and Saturday Evening Girl’s Paul Revere Pottery.
Boston and the surrounding area were at the center for the Arts and Crafts movement and had one of the greatest and most important regional outputs of ceramics at the turn of the Twentieth Century.
The exhibit presents rare one-of-a-kind examples as well as more usual pieces, covering the spectrum of work produced. Highlighted in this exhibition is an 11-inch-tall double gourd Grueby vase with heavily articulated leaves and a six-inch Dedham plate with a dog border decoration. Also by Dedham is a volcanic vase with a textured, bubbled surface, and a cylindrical Marblehead vase with channeled-carved geometric decoration.
JMW Gallery is at 144 Lincoln Street. For information, 617-338-9097 or www.jmwgallery.com.
