More than 100 exhibitions are being held around town as part of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts’ annual conference. Most are at places you’d expect, like the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Some are on view in nontraditional spaces; ''Jessica Dupuis: Miniature'' is on display inside The Kenmore, a mobile refrigerator.
Dupuis, a past resident artist at HCCC, currently has work in group shows at Lawndale and the Glassell Studio School. This solo Kenmore show features her trademark style of highly textured sculptures that are constructed out of clay slip and discarded materials, including newspaper and cardboard boxes. The resulting fragmented, layered sheets of softly colored ceramic are meant to be ''read,'' she says.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: March 15. Continues through May 31, 2013
