What Do I Know: Forty Years

ARTIST TALK & RECEPTION: Second Friday, May 10th 6-8 pm
EXHIBITION DATES: May 3rd - 31st, 2019

What Do I Know: Forty Years highlights work by local artist Kris Cox from the past forty years, including ceramic works from 1979 through 2015, as well as, non-ceramic works from 2019. You won't believe your eyes! This work is monumental and a must see!

Kris Cox earned his MFA in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1977 and his BA from Claremont McKenna College in 1973.  While studying at Claremont, Cox began working with clay under Paul Soldner at Scripps College. During 1974-75, Cox followed Soldner to the Roaring Fork Valley to be a core member of the ceramic apprentices that built the first kilns and transformed buildings into studios at Anderson Ranch Art Center.  After teaching in various locations, Cox retired in 1982 from his position as Assistant Professor at San Diego University to concentrate fully on his art career. He has had 60 one-person shows nationally, and his works are in the collections of many institutions.  For more information about Kris Cox, please visit his website

What Do I Know: Forty Years will be on display at the Carbondale Clay Center Gallery from May 3rd through 31st. The Carbondale Clay Center is located at 135 Main Street, Carbondale, CO 81623. Gallery Hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
