This exhibition highlights the diversity, creativity, and technical virtuosity of 20th and 21st century ceramic artists working in Japan. The show features artists whose work is inspired by traditional themes, as well as influenced by the avant-garde.  Forty artists, including many of Japan's greatest living ceramicists, are represented in the 75 works, which include tea vessels, biomorphic shapes, geometric designs, and sculptural forms. Amelia Chau, the curator of the exhibition, will lead the tour. After the tour, we will have lunch in the Museum Café.

Attendees are expected to arrange for their own travel to and from Sacramento.
