Lee Mingwei: Stone Journey Through Sunday, Aug. 4 Worcester Art Museum, 55 Salisbury St., Worcester Since ancient times humans have strived to represent or emulate the beauty of the natural world. In the Chinese literati tradition, scholars would not only decorate their studies with paintings, jades and ceramics that portrayed the natural world outside, but they would also collect and display naturally-formed rocks. What kind of object is more valuable then, the natural or man-made? And what does it mean to own an object? In Stone Journey conceptual artist Lee Mingwei poses these two questions to visitors and invites them to contemplate what they would choose. 84th Regional Exhibition of Art & Craft Through Sunday, Sept. 1 Fitchburg Art Museum, 185 Elm St., Fitchburg One of the oldest juried exhibitions in New England.

Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Horvitz Collection Through Sunday, Oct. 27 Worcester Art Museum, 55 Salisbury St., Worcester While modern and contemporary artists are known to have looked outside their immediate cultural realm to expand their sources for modern inspiration, many of them at the same time were also looking at their own culture’s ancient techniques and forms.

This case rotation features works from such renowned late twentieth-century potters as Kamoda Shoji, Mori Togaku and Mihara Ken, to emerging stars such as Isezaki Koichiro.
