Aspects of Ingenuity and Innovation: A Potter’s Perspective on the VMFA’s Ceramic Art Collection
November 1, 2021 @ 6:30 pm
Two of Great Britain’s finest academic ceramic art institutions recently closed their doors. The same thing will happen in America if ceramic art educators lose awareness of what made the craft movement possible after World War II. The New Wheel Order is a restoration and expansion of the notion of function in ceramic art. The Virginia Museum of Fine Art’s Steven Glass will discuss these ideas and question the concepts of meaning and experience in contemporary art.
Steven Glass is the resident potter at the VMFA, where he has taught since 1982. He has conducted pottery residencies in Great Britain and Korea and is a member of the board of the Cub Creek Pottery Foundation.
This program is a part of the Centuries of Art series, brought to you in partnership by Williamsburg Regional Library, the Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
