Thanks for the notice about the exhibit of Color and Fire; Defining Moments
in Studio Ceramics, 1950-2000 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in

We drove up and saw the show on Friday. It was terrific!!! It is not just
sculpture, it is a bit of everything, and includes most of the very
familiar names over the past fifty years. There are also video interviews
with many of the living artists, and these are wonderful, too. There is a
book available that catalogs the exhibition that sells for $40 (in the gift
shop) and looked good, but I didn't get it.

The show continues through September 17.

On Sept 9, there will be a day long series of lectures and discussions
addressing critical issues that will affect the ceramics field in the new
millennium. It will be moderated by Paul Greenhaigh, head of research,
Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Tickets are $15 but only $5 for
seniors and students with ID. If we were still in California at that time,
I would think that might be worthwhile depending on the presenters. More
info from

Hi Everybody!

I just want to draw your attention to the new exhibit of ceramic sculpture,
at the LA County Museum of Art, in Los Angeles. Be sure to see it, if you
live in S. California, or if you plan to visit between now and mid-September.
The LA Times art reviewer gave the exhibit a "thumbs up." I plan to visit
in the near future.

For further details, visit the museum's website:

Best wishes!
