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 aims to feature 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 are 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.
