On the evening of Oct. 8, more than 100 KCAI Alumni Weekend attendees, students, staff, faculty and community members flocked to the H&R Block Artspace for a private reception and gallery talk in conjunction with the opening of “(Re)Form”  with exhibition curator Catherine Futter. “(Re)Form,” in celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Kansas City Art Institute, explores recent work by graduates of the KCAI ceramics program from the late 1960s to the present. Futter is the Helen Jane and R. Hugh “Pat” Uhlmann Curator of Decorative Arts at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.  Several of the participating artists attended the gallery talk and opening reception that followed. “Reform” is on view through Dec. 18.
