Inaugural Kiln Pad Pop-Up Exhibition: Annie E. Dennis

May 19, 2017


Give your Eastern Market Flower Day cache a beautiful home with a ceramic planter by Annie E. Dennis, the featured artist of Pewabic’s Inaugural Kiln Pad Pop-Up Exhibition, 1-4 p.m. Sunday, May 21.

Works are available for purchase on a cash-and-carry basis at this one-day exhibition, rain or shine.

A Cranbrook Academy of Art alumna and Pewabic Education Director, Dennis explores and combines her love of ceramics and gardening, both of which feed Dennis’s interests with their combination of science and art and essence of patience, creativity, and coping with loss.

“While examining these parallels I found a simple place for a plant to live,” says Dennis, whose planting containers will be the focus of the exhibition.

This is Pewabic’s first pop-up exhibit. says Darlene Carroll, Exhibit Curator, who sees it as a solution for limits placed by calendar and space.

“It seemed a logical solution to take it outside,” says Carroll, who selected Dennis as its inaugural artist. “We’re trying something that had never been done before. I think it’s going to be a fun experiment.”

Upcoming Kiln Pad Pop-Ups include Didem Mert, June 24,  and Troy Bungart, August 5.  For more information, contact exhibitions@pewabic.org.
