Davis will be represented at The Ceramics Annual of America 2011 exhibition and art fair next month in San Francisco. The event spotlights the quality and diversity of contemporary ceramics from around the world, including works from China, Korea, Mexico, Australia and Italy.

Work by Davis artist and teacher Linda S. Fitz Gibbon will be included in the show, which is at the Fort Mason Festival Hall. An opening reception runs from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, and the exhibition is open Friday through Sunday. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The only event of its kind in the United States, the ceramics exhibition’s goal is to encourage the education and enrichment of the public, cultivate a fertile art market, and foster dialog between collectors and makers of ceramic sculpture.

The Ceramics Annual of America is the largest exhibition and art fair that is juried and entirely focused on ceramic sculpture in America. Modeled after the Ceramic Biennials held in Europe, Korea, Japan and China, it provides a venue for the top regional and international artists working in the clay medium to show their work to a broader audience of collectors.

The event is organized by the California Ceramics Cooperative, a group of regional ceramic artists, and will feature panel discussions, lectures and tours, plus daily interactive art demonstrations.

“Fort Mason still resonates with the presence of the California Funk movement of the 1960s and ’70s that inspired ceramic greats living in San Francisco today,” a news release said.

“Its close proximity to nature, unique architecture and nostalgic atmosphere contribute a breathtaking backdrop for an impressive array of ceramic sculptures.”
