May 6 - June 3, 2001:
Hommage to Ewen Henderson
Exhibition of International Ceramic Art


With his death on October 6 last year, Ewen Henderson left behind a great number of people who mourn the loss of a friend and one of the great ceramic artists of the second half of the twentieth century, and there are many among them who owe him encouragement, inspiration and support. In the ten years before he died Ewen Henderson took a very lively interest in my gallery where I had the good luck and fortune to show his work on various occasions in either solo or group shows. It is in gratitude to a remarkable man and artist that I am showing a memorial exhibition from May 6 to June 3, 2001.

I intend to present works by Ewen Henderson and artists, who in one way or other have come into contact with him and who feel they would like to offer their homage to Ewen Henderson by contributing examples of their work to this exhibition.

The circle of contributors will of course neither be restricted to British artists nor to those who have already exhibited in my gallery, but extended to all those whose participation would add to the attraction of an event, which not only will offer a retrospective of contemporary ceramic art of the past decade, but also fresh outlooks into its future.

The exhibition will be opened on May 6, 2001 at the Gallery Marianne Heller with addresses by close friends of Ewen Henderson, Carol Mc Nicoll, London and Frank Nievergelt, Zurich.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday: 11 a.m. to 18 p.m.
