He has participated in more than 200 group exhibitions over the past decade, including 701 Center for Contemporary Art’s recent TRIENNIAL Revisited. His work is in the collections of several museums, including the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, Calif.; the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pa.; the Taipei County Yingge Ceramic Museum in Taiwan; the Minneapolis (Minn.) Institute of Arts; the Yixing Ceramic Museum in China; and the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia. Connell’s most recent solo exhibition was at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Pa. He holds a BFA from the Kansas City (Mo.) Art Institute and an MFA from the University of Illinois at Urbana. Connell lives in Rock Hill, where he is a professor of ceramics at Winthrop University.

Statement of support:

Jim Connell’s work is extremely sophisticated, both technically and conceptually. In the many years that I have been aware of him, his work ethic, sense of craft and the formal resolution of his work is impressive. He is also a great mentor to several generations of artists throughout the state and nation.
