The California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art — the largest professional art function in the region — will be hosted by the John Natsoulas Center for the Arts on Friday through Sunday, April 26-28. The exhibit will open Wednesday and run through May 25.
In its 25th year, this event continues to bring the leading national and international ceramic artists to Northern California for a weekend of creative instruction and collaboration.
The conference is a ceramics weekend of more than 50 exhibitions, many hands-on clay demonstrations and interactive clay events. In two days, visitors can see the biggest collection of student work from more than 50 schools, as well as established artists. Featured artists will include Lisa Clague, Rebekah Bogard, Judy Moonelis, Jeff Mongrain, Ivette Guier, Clayton Keyes and Tony Perry.
This grassroots conference and festival will give everyone an opportunity to view work by students of every level of learning and well-known artists.
The John Natsoulas Center for the Arts will hold its annual gallery-wide “30 Ceramics Sculptors” exhibition concurrently with the conference. 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 UC Davis art department and local ceramic artists.
