February 23 - June 30: "Three Decades of West Coast Ceramics, 1956-1986
This exhibit highlights a fundamental shift in American ceramics, one that took place mainly on the West Coast in California and Washington. Freed from the constraints of making functional objects, ceramics artists began experimenting with abstract and figural forms, radical building techniques and surface treatments. The resulting sculptural pieces were groundbreaking, and the search for a new aesthetic changed international ceramic art. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
