Featuring the work of David Ernster, Phyllis Ewen & Wendy Prellwitz

David Ernster is a ceramic artist whose work is deeply connected to nature and water. This inherent connection is rooted in both the materials he uses and his childhood fascination with fossil formations along the Mississippi river. David’s interest in vessels and their ability to contain infinite possibilities is what drew him to work with clay and metal, mediums traditionally used in the creation of vessels. In addition to his own work in ceramics, metal, and jewelry, David has taught at multiple universities and is a visiting professor of art at Colby-Sawyer College.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10-5 / Sunday 1-5 / and by appointment
