Davis artists Rene Martucci and Donna Billick have been selected to show their work and complete artist hands-on demonstrations at the fourth Ceramics Annual of America from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19-20, at the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza.
Billick’s Interactive Bee Workshop haven is a response to the colony collapse disorder that is reaching all around the world. The mission is to identify with bee culture inside the hive and out in the fields as pollinators.
For more than 15 years, Martucci has created dog imagery. She will give a demonstration on how she creates her dog forms, focusing on the face and the feet. When Martucci builds her dog forms, she creates vessels out of slabs and coils, forming them into the parts and then attaching them together.
The Ceramics Annual of America is an exhibition and art fair spotlighting the quality and diversity of contemporary ceramics from around the world, including works from China, Korea, Mexico, Australia and Italy. For more information, visit http://ceramicsannual.org.
