Enchanted Gardens: Enamels by an American Master celebrates the art and legacy of Karl Drerup—artist, craftsman, mentor and Plymouth Teachers College teacher— by returning the work of this American master to public view. The exhibition focuses on the jewel-like painted enamels that brought national attention to Drerup, at mid-20th century. In his small studio, Drerup created an Enchanted Garden in the imaginative imagery of his enamel plaques, bowls and trays. Examples of Drerup’s graphic art, painting, and ceramics are used to illustrate the intellectual and aesthetic unity and artistic virtuosity of his body of work throughout his chosen media.
