“Are We There Yet?” opening at Ferrin Contemporary on July 15 is not just another Berkshire summer gallery exhibition. Well, it is and it’s not. Most works, including newly created pieces, are for sale. But some are on loan from private collectors and artist archives, which is odd for a commercial gallery —particularly one of this caliber. Ferrin Contemporary is renowned for its specialization in contemporary ceramics and introduction of living clay artists to a wider population of art appreciators and collectors.

But “Are We There Yet?” is a uniquely introspective exhibition for gallery owner Leslie Ferrin as well as the 20 participating artists and the community at large. You could call it a survey show, but not of a specific artist’s work. It’s a survey show of the gallery itself.”
