Myrton Purkiss / The Landing
The new Myrton Purkiss show at The Landing in Reform is up.
If you don't know Purkiss there's a little background on him here.
This has got to be the largest showing of work by Purkiss since the 1950s.
Gerard has been squirreling this stuff away for a very long time.
Myrton didn't just do plates.
This is the one from the 1952 exhibition, 6000 Years Art in Clay.
There's some great ephemera on view as well.
After a conversation about Myrton's career change from ceramics to landscape architecture, Peter pointed out how
the plate below looks exactly like a landscape plan.
