Join the experts for discussion of 20th century ceramics from multiple perspectives, coinciding with the New York Ceramics and Glass Fair.

First, Adrienne Spinozzi, Assistant Research Curator, American Wing, Metropolitan Museum of Art, will lecture on Newcomb College Pottery in New Orleans, LA, the leading southern Arts and Crafts enterprise that focused on the art education of women.

Next, Tom Folk, Ph.D., AAA, ceramics historian and appraiser, will discuss problematic commissions at Rockefeller Center, including such figures as Diego Rivera; and, Georgia O’Keeffe. He will then focus on the ceramic artist Henry Varnum Poor, who had his own problems at Radio City.

Donald Fletcher, Director of the Takeazu House Museum, will present a lecture on Toshiko Takeazu as a teacher. He will discuss her works and those of her students (himself included) as well as new plans for turning her house studio into a museum.

In the afternoon, attendees will visit the nearby ceramics studio of Gary DiPasquale, noted contemporary ceramic artist, who will discuss his work, how ceramics are made and the current market.

Tickets to attend the New York Ceramics and Glass Fair on the following day, January 18, will be provided to attendees.
