Making Fun - 67th Scripps College Ceramic Annual
The Scripps College Ceramics Annual — the longest-running exhibition of contemporary ceramics in the United States — opens for its 67th consecutive year on Saturday, January 22, 2010 and continues through Sunday, April 3. Titled “Making Fun,” the Ceramic Annual highlights works from a younger generation of artists who address a wide range of topics while imbuing their art with a sense of humor. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The theme “Making Fun” was chosen to affirm the value of play, a creative state requiring openness, vulnerability, and creativity. Play and art are closely intertwined, each representing the impulse to shape and adapt to a changing world. The works featured maintain their sense of humor while continuing to communicate their messages. Artists include: Barnaby Barford, Pattie Chalmers, Gerit Grimm, Ayumi Hori Sara Varon, Janice Jakielski, Matthew McConnell, Peter Morgan, Thomas Müller, Brendan Tang, and Matt Wedel.
The opening reception will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2011, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Williamson Gallery.
The Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery is located at Eleventh Street and Columbia Avenue, adjacent to Baxter Hall. During exhibitions, the gallery is open to the public, free of charge, Wednesday through Sunday, from 1-5 p.m. For more information, please contact the gallery at (909) 607-3397 or visit the website.
