Founded in 1983, the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College presents four annual exhibitions spanning a wide range of art. Whether historical or contemporary, Western or Asian, exhibitions enrich the teaching of art and humanities at Scripps as well as the cultural community of Claremont and environs. Since 1996, the Williamson Gallery has invited guest curators to coordinate the annual ceramics exhibition.
This grant will be providing support to fund the 74th Scripps Ceramic Annual catalogue. The show will be curated by Patsy Cox, Professor of Visual Arts and Head of Ceramics at Cal State Northridge. The exhibit celebrates artists who embrace a myriad of cultures and backgrounds, and will serve as a touchstone for the next generation of ceramic artists. The exhibition related to the catalogue will take place January through April 2018.
