Ceramics Annual of America

Ceramics Annual of America
Just a heads up to ceramics fans out there; this is happening in San Francisco this fall. From their website:
"The Ceramics Annual of America (CAA) is an unparalleled exhibition, the first event of its kind in the United States. On par with events like the Korea World Ceramic Biennale, or the Ceramics Biennial at the Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza, Italy, CAA will showcase one of the largest and most diverse exhibitions of ceramic art in North America."

More Info:

"Organized by the California Ceramics Cooperative, a group of
invested regional ceramic artists, CAA will bring together an
impressive number of the nation’s top ceramic artists, instructors and
collectors. The Cooperative’s mission is to establish an exhibition
to promote the artwork of ceramic artists in the region, thereby
increasing exposure of the artists’ work and creating a larger market
for the ceramic medium. Major ceramic art annuals or biennials exist
in 27 countries, including Italy, Taiwan and Korea, and we believe now
is the time for us to move forward with organizing one in the United
States. The Ceramics Annual of America, expected to be an
unprecedented event of its kind in this country, will provide a venue
for regional and national artists working in the clay medium to show
their work to a broader group of collectors.

The inaugural exhibition is scheduled for September 2010 in Herbst
Pavilion at Ft. Mason. Ft. Mason, as the site chosen for this event,
embodies the essence of San Francisco—its nearness to nature, combined
with the novel architecture, gives a nod to the past and offers a dose
of the different. Fr. Mason offers one of the few San Francisco
waterfront venue rentals and is a major draw for national and
international visitors to the city. Herbst Pavilion, a 30,000 square
ft. hall, can accommodate as many as 3,000 visitors."
