"Picasso-esque" teapots

With its most significant show ever just a few weeks away, the Hudgens Arts Center in Duluth is counting on large crowds and hoping for a boost in membership.
An exhibit of Pablo Picasso's ceramics, which executive director Nancy Gullickson says is the museum's "first national touring show of major significance," will be shown from Feb. 3 to April 2.
The show includes 65 pieces of sculpture created by the famed artist in Vallauris, in the south of France, between 1947 and 1971, said Lucy Ennis, the museum's curator and exhibitions coordinator.
Nadine Aberdeen, the museum's education director, is also putting together a collection of locally produced teapots of "Picasso-esque" design to be auctioned at the Feb. 18 event.
"The wilder, the better," she said. Artists have until the end of the month to submit their juried works, she said. Artists can place a reserve on their pieces and will receive 50 percent of the auction price.
