It’s time for the September 2010 edition of the Editor’s Picks, a compilation of five top picks of ceramics exhibitions and events
from me, your trusty CAD editor (or perhaps some special guest
editors!). If I could be in five places at once, these picks would be
those places
. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

To see a more complete listing of ceramic exhibitions and events, please check out the Ceramics Monthly calendar.


With summer drawing to a close, the timing is perfect for an exhibition of work by Julie Guyot themed around memories of summer family vacations. To me, the fun plate shown here conjures up images of family picnics with plastic tablecloths and corn on the cob, so I’d say she’s hit the mark pretty well.

Curated by Nathan Prouty, the youngest resident artist at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Pretty Young Things at Lacoste Gallery presents 10 artists that are using clay in fresh new ways, exploring new ideas, and expanding our concept of what clay should and could be. If you are looking for cutting edge clay work, don’t miss this show! And act fast! It comes down September 4.

I love this piece by Yoko Sekino Bove (and the title of the work for that matter!) This show at San Joaquin Community College, juried by Arthur Gonzalez, has an impressive roster of nearly fifty clay artists. I highly recommend a visit to this one, but if you can’t get there, visit the exhibition virtually and see images of the work.

Barbro …berg, Black and Brown Spiral Bowl, 22 x 41 x 41 cm.

Barbro Aberg has been featured on Ceramic Arts Daily in the past and I was excited to come across this exhibition of new work at Galleri Jytte Moeller in Fredericia, Denmark. Aberg uses a mixture of ball clay, paper fibers and perlite, a volcanic substance, to create her challenging forms.

Now in it’s eighth year, the Perspectives 2010 exhibition at the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation (OCAF), Watkinsville, Georgia, opens this weekend and continues through September 15. As usual, it looks to be jam-packed with great work (like the piece by Sooyeon Kim at the top of the page, and the jar shown to the right). The event features a sale of more than 4,500 individual pieces of pottery by 50 of Georgia’s finest potters, a workshop with Sequoia Miller, and a special exhibition of work by a dozen nationally known potters. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!

  • Thanks for the show tips. Strange that there are no other comments here. For me, this is far more interesting than most of the posts that get lots of comments. Perspectives is a wonderful show well worth a trip to the Athens, Georgia area.
