Minnetonka Center for the Arts invites guests to a pottery exhibit from master potter Richard Bresnahan.

An opening reception for the show, titled “Selections from the Johanna Kiln,” is 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, in the center’s Laura H. Miles Gallery, 2240 N. Shore Dr., Wayzata.

Bresnahan, and the ceramics program he has created at The Saint John’s Pottery at Saint John’s University, have attracted international attention and praise. The heart of that program is the wood-burning Johanna kiln, a massive noborigama (multi-chambered climbing kiln) first fired in 1995. The kiln yields a rich variety of effects from each of its annual firings. In this exhibition, Bresnahan will exhibit pieces culled from years of work.

“Selections from the Johanna Kiln” runs through Thursday, Oct. 27. This exhibit is open to the public at no cost.
