Fwd: CCACA 2017 Ultimate Ceramic Art Conference

CCACA 2017 brings the ultimate ceramic sculpture event to Davis, CA.
In an intimate setting, you can interact with top artists in a way not
possible at other venues. Featuring an all-star line-up of ceramic
artists including Eva Kwong, Lisa Clague, Bar Shacterman, Kenjiro
Kitade, John Balistreri and Dirk Staschke. This event will be held
over three days on
April 28th from April 30th at the John Natsoulas Gallery and throughout
downtown Davis.

UC Davis, home to the late sculptor Robert Arneson, was instrumental
in defining a new direction for ceramic art. Enjoy delightful downtown
Davis and be inspired by nationally recognized ceramic art talents.

Demonstrations, lectures, shows—no other event delivers more inspired
knowledge of ceramic sculpture for a better price. Meet face-to-face
with distinguished ceramic sculptors you might only read about; see
and hear from the artists what makes them top in their field.

The weekend will include over forty pop-up gallery shows all within in
walking distance within downtown Davis. These shows run concurrent
with CCACA 2017. See all this and over 40 amazing student shows within
a short walk. This is a chance to surround yourself with the top
ceramic art of today and the ideas of the artists of tomorrow. Local
gallery exhibitions and over 40 college shows bring the best work of
the year within easy reach.
