The Scripps 77th Ceramic Annual

January 29th through April 10th, 2022

Opening Reception will be on Saturday, January 29th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

This year the Williamson Gallery has invited Ashwini Bhat, to be our guest curator for the 77th Ceramic Annual.

The exhibition, On Fire: Contemporary Trailblazers, Bhat has selected works by artists whose works visually explores and honors some of the most compelling and diverse artistic imaginations in the field. Each artist works with ceramic as a primary material. All are sculptors whose innovative, sometimes radical approaches to form and process, whose perseverance, and constant reinvention, have made them the source of inspiration for not only a younger generation, but for their peers. They include, Ebitenyefa Baralaye, Sharbani Das Gupta, Nicki Green, Julia Haft-Candell, Anna Sew Hoy, Kahlil Robert Irving, Anabel Suárez, David Katz, Sahar Khoury, Nathan Lynch, Annabeth Rosen, Nicole Seisler, and Linda Sormin.

We extend our gratitude to our supporters, principally the Pasadena Art Alliance, which is devoted to contemporary art, and has supported these exhibitions since 2000, which has made this and many earlier Ceramic Annual catalogs possible.

Special thanks also go to private donors who supported the catalog, including Julianne and David Armstrong, Bill and Francine Baker, Kirk and Dana Delman, David Furman, Susan and Brent Maire, Diane and Igal Silber, and Skutt Ceramic Products, Inc. At Scripps, we are grateful for assistance from the Lincoln Ceramic Annual Fund, Lincoln Ceramic Study Center Fund, and the Paul Soldner Endowment.

Finally, we thank the Williamson Gallery’s Advisory Council, Interim Dean of Faculty Gretchen Edwards-Gilbert, Interim President Amy Marcus-Newhall, and the Trustees of Scripps College.
