The Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle presents “Pictures Worth a Thousand Pots: Tracing Ceramics in Art”, a lecture by Angelika Kuettner, Associate Curator of Ceramics, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia
Refreshments immediately following lecture.
Whether used as a symbol to measure wealth and status, show everyday activity, or serve as a prop in a still life, ceramics have been featured prominently in art throughout history. With a broad sweeping brush, this visually vibrant presentation will trace ceramics through art by taking a closer look at the role pottery and porcelain have played in paintings over time.
Angelika Kuettner is the associate curator of ceramics at Colonial Williamsburg. Previously, she was the curatorial assistant at the Reeves Center at Washington and Lee University.
Admission for non-members of the Connecticut Ceramics Study Circle is $25. For additional information visit www.ctcsc.org.
