Conference features ceramic arts

By April 25, 2014

The California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art is the largest professional art function in the region, hosted by the John Natsoulas Center for the Arts. Now, in its 26th year, this event continues to bring the leading national and international ceramic artists to Northern California for a weekend of creative instruction and collaboration.

This year the conference will take place Friday to Sunday, April 25 to April 27. It is a ceramics weekend of more than 50 exhibitions, many hands-on clay demonstrations and interactive clay events.

In three days, visitors can see the biggest collection of student work from more than 50 schools, as well as established artists.

Featured artists will include: Esther Shimazu, Stephen Braun, Wesley Anderegg, Tom Arie Donch, Donna Billick, Jennifer Brazelton, Arthur Gonzalez, Kevin Snipes, John Toki and many more.

This grassroots conference and festival will give everyone an opportunity to view work by students of every level of learning as well as by well-known artists.

The John Natsoulas Center for the Arts, 521 First St. in Davis, will hold its annual gallery-wide 30 ceramics sculptors exhibition in concurrence with the conference.

The work will be on display from April 16 to May 24. This exhibition was first conceived in 1986, a collaboration between Robert Arneson and John Natsoulas, and continues the ceramic traditions made famous by instructors and students of the University of California, Davis art department and the University of California, Davis and local ceramic artists.
