The exhibition surveys three prominent colors in ceramic history – brown, white, and green. Over sixty pieces from the collection are on display with the addition of contemporary pieces on loan from artists Linda Cordell, William DePauw, Gerit Grimm, Bryan Hopkins, Nicholas Kripal, Forrest Lesch-Middelton, and John Williams.  The works are presented in three dense compositional arrangements to create a sense of color ancestry in ceramics.
