Fahrenheit 2024 – Exhibition Overview

The American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) is delighted to announce Fahrenheit 2024, the revival of our juried exhibition. Launched in 2018, Fahrenheit 2018 received an overwhelming response and showcased over 80 artists’ best ceramic creations juried by Patti Warashina. This year, AMOCA features the talents of artists contributing to the contemporary ceramic arts community. We are honored that Kathy King, Director of the Ceramics Program at Harvard University, is the esteemed juror for this year’s exhibition. 

Artists whose works were selected through the jurying process will be celebrated at the opening reception. This exhibition will provide an invaluable platform for showcasing a diverse range of work and fostering recognition within the ceramics community.

She has taught at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, and University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth, MA, and was an Associate Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, until 2007. Her undergraduate work included the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, and she received her BA in Studio Art with a major in Ceramics from Connecticut College, New London, CT, in 1990.  She received her MFA from the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, in 1998. She has given workshops and lectures at over seventy-five colleges, schools, and art centers throughout the USA. The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts featured King as an Emerging Artist in 1999, a Demonstrating Artist in 2002, a co-juror with Mark Burns for the 2012 National Student Juried Show, and a lecturer and panelist. The Boston Foundation, Boston, MA, recently awarded her a Brother Thomas Fellowship.

Best of Show

The Fahrenheit 2024 Best of Show, selected by Kathy King, is awarded to Carly Slade for Berta, a ceramic “scrap truck” created with remote control car components and found objects. King shares, “The work I chose as “Best in Show” spoke to me for its meticulous craftsmanship and because it represented “the in-between” in our country – those overlooked or struggling due to societal or economic constructs and the impermanence of home.” Slade will receive a solo exhibition in the Igal & Diane Silber Vault Gallery at AMOCA in 2025-26.

Thanks to our supporters

This exhibition is funded, in part, by a grant from the Dew Foundation and by support from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Department of Arts and Culture.
