Lecture and Opening Reception: January 26

This year, the Ceramic Annual, the longest-running exhibition of contemporary ceramics in the nation, turns 75! Curator Kirk Delman, who has worked with the collection for decades, has selected a wide variety of works from the College’s renowned Marer Collection to display in the exhibition. Fred Marer collected artwork in the mid-twentieth century, befriending and supporting some of the greatest ceramic artists of the time. Many of the works he purchased directly from those artists will be on display as we celebrate 75 years of ceramic exhibitions. The Ceramic Annual lecture, given by gallerist and curator Frank Lloyd, will be held at the Humanities Auditorium on Sat., Jan. 26, at 4 pm, followed by the opening  at the gallery, from 7 to 9 pm.
