The Elaine and Sidney Cohen Collection of Contemporary Ceramics, on view through November 18, represents a gift of enormous magnitude that vastly increases the Crocker’s ceramics collection both in terms of size and importance. On the opening day of the exhibition showcasing these new acquisitions, hear from noted national authority in contemporary ceramics, Peter Held, recipient of numerous awards for his work in increasing appreciation and understanding of ceramics. In this lively talk, Peter will help us gain greater insight into this stunning collection of works ranging from stark minimalism to elaborate figuration, representing just part of the vast landscape of ceramic artists willing to push the boundaries of this wide-ranging artform.
