76th Scripps College Ceramic Annual: Sentiment and Skepticism, Our Culture of Contradictions

Pomona College, Claremont, CA

January 25 – April 5, 2020

From flowers to fluorescent brains, connections and conflicts in nature and culture are the focus of the Scripps College 76th Ceramic Annual. The longest continuous exhibition of contemporary ceramics in the nation will open on Jan. 25 and continue through Apr. 5. Participating artists include Wesley Anderegg, Richard Burkett, Rebecca Hutchinson, Jeff Irwin, Kate MacDowell, Crystal Morey, James Tisdale, Theodore Vogel, Patti Warashina, Stan Welsh, and Mary Cale. A. Wilson. This exhibition is curated by Joanne Hayakawa, professor emerita at San Diego State University, School of Art and Design.

The artists in this group present some of their most active, and interactive, pieces in this exhibit. Works stand up on their own, hang from the ceiling, or extrude from the wall. In curating the show, Joanne Hayakawa, professor emerita at San Diego State University, School of Art and Design, sought to highlight the dynamism of conflicting elements and the tensions they produce within various contexts.

This exhibition features an illustrated catalog with an essay by art writer Robert L. Pincus.
