Opening Reception for Architectural Pottery: Ceramics for a Modern Landscape

Saturday, September 7, 2024 • 4–6 PM • In Person

Join us for the opening reception for Architectural Pottery: Ceramics for a Modern Landscape, a new exhibition exploring the significant impact of mid-twentieth-century architecture and design on artists in California.

The exhibition brings together work by the largely under-recognized ceramic artists, and graphic and industrial designers John Follis, Rex Goode, LaGardo Tackett, David Cressey, Paul McCobb, Malcolm Leland, Marilyn Kay Austin, Raul Angulo Coronel, and Jack Morris.

Also on view will be contemporary photographs by Chavkin, period photographs of Architectural Pottery planters in situ in mid-century modern residences by Julius Shulman (Getty Research Institute Archive), original catalogs and ephemera from Architectural Pottery sourced from private collections, and reproductions of company materials from the UCLA Library Special Collection.
