Jeff Kell of Rush, one of six artists selected for the 6th Rochester Biennial, speaks on his work. His talk is included in Gallery admission.
“My work explores family, home, relationships and memories of loved ones,” says Kell, whose ceramics are infused with humor, irony and clear-eyed observation. “It recalls times long gone of playing games or eating breakfast with my dad.”
An MFA graduate of RIT’s School for American Crafts, Kell has exhibited his ceramics across the country. The veteran of five Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibitions, he was selected for the Biennial on the strength of his work in last year’s show. He also collaborates with clients including CorningWare, Dansk, Lenox and Steuben to create distinctive consumer products.
The Biennial Artist Series is underwritten by the Sandra G. Dreyfuss Education Endowment Fund.
Pictured: Hero or Zero? (2013) was on view in last summer’s Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition.
