President’s Message

Cheryl Costantini - Board President ACGASince joining the board in 2017, my goal has been to make ACGA a more equitable, accessible and relevant organization that better serves the needs and offers more value to our varied membership. We started with community meet ups, then Covid hit and those morphed to zoom gatherings.We changed the membership structure removing hierarchical labels that left some feeling lesser than. We tried several online sales, which worked well for many. We had many excellent exhibitions and we participated in NECEA for the first time, which was a grand success.

Emil Yanos’ piece “Rumble” was juried into Route One’s Annual Juried Show.

I work from both memory and photography.My work records what is real in our environment.My work also records what is perceived.The marks and textures in my work help to create sensations, real or perceived that I would want you the viewer to experience.I hope that my work will bring a sense of wonder and curiosity.The combination of familiar forms and textures will cause you to marvel at things you notice if you take the time to slow down and experience the world around you.

POTTERS FOR PEACE HAS A NEW NAME AND EXPANDED MISSION

ACGA supported Potters for Peace for many years at the Clay/Glass Festival with an information booth and Nicaraguan pottery for sale.

They were primarily focused on teaching communities in Nicaragua how to make ceramic water filters to produce clean, healthy drinking water. Now they have expanded their mission to include more countries, broadened their projects (adding hygiene and women’s economic self-sufficiency) and chosen a new name, Good Foundations International.

President’s Message

Cheryl Costantini - Board President ACGAIt seems as though autumn has at last opened the door to cool weather, colorful trees, and even rain. It’s been quite a year for all of us, in so many ways I think. ACGA continues to grow the organization and to seek better ways to be in inclusive and relevant.

Having our board meetings on zoom now opens up the possibility for more people to participation the board level. This letter is your personal invitation to consider serving on the ACGA board. As a board member you can help guide the organization to meet the goals outlined above, and help articulate new goals that you feel are important and would like to see worked on.

If any of you out there are interested, please feel free to call me for more information. Our next board meeting is on Monday, November 14th, 5:00. By attending it via zoom from the comfort of your home, you will get a good idea about how the board works and if you’re interested in joining.

On another note, it is that time of year for so many craft people. I always feel a bit like an elf in my workshop busily making pots and imagining them in the hands of happy gift givers and recipients. Being able to bring handmade things into the lives of other people must certainly be a tonic for these times, and I’m so glad to be able to be part of creating good.
Grateful does not come close to describing how I feel!

Jenni Ward

Jenni WardJenni has her ceramic sculpture on display in an exhibit Bodies of Water, at Eloise Pickard Smith Gallery | UCSC Santa Cruz California
Through December 3.

“Finding inspiration through exploration of the natural world has led to imagery of intricate planktonic skeletal structures that are too small to be seen with the naked eye, and to blooms of phytoplankton that are so large they can be seen from space swirling like a Van Gogh painting in the currents and tides.

Translating these images of life below the ocean’s surface into abstracted ceramic works that are reminiscent of jellyfish, urchins and other varieties of plankton forces the once mysterious world of plankton to be perceived.”

“Discovering the importance of these tiny beautiful creatures and their role in our changing climate only deepens my attraction to them. This exhibit ties together science, environmentalism and art in the hopes of inspiring others to preserve, protect and enjoy our wild spaces.”

Amoca - American Museum of Ceramic Art - Breaking Ground

September 10, 2022–January 22, 2023 / February 19, 2023
Catalog: Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay
Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay – Exhibition Overview
The American Museum of Ceramic Art is proud to present the exhibition and accompanying catalog Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay, celebrating 44 artists who have defined—and redefined—ceramics over the past 100 years. Many of the Golden State’s most innovative and impactful ceramic artists in the 20th and 21st centuries are women who faced adversity due to gender inequality and were often ignored or overlooked in favor of their male counterparts. These incredibly determined women pushed forward, driven by creativity and tenacity.
Breaking Ground highlights the significant shifts in California ceramics over several generations of women artists. The story is toldi n three sections, using the artist’s “breaking ground period” (rather than their date of birth) to determine their place in history. The story begins with trailblazers Laura Andreson, Betty Davenport Ford, Stefani Gruenberg, Vivika Heino, Elaine Katzer, Mary Lindheim, Martha Longenecker, Gertrud Natzler, Susan Peterson, Ruth Rippon, Susi Singer, Helen Ritcher Watson, Marguerite Wildenhain, and Beatrice Wood. These artists laid the groundwork for the field and inspired successive generations of artists.
The second section includes a disparate group of artists who explored—or are exploring—the female figure, feminism, and the creation of the perfect form. Works by Judy Chicago, Dora De Larios, Roseline Delisle, Viola Frey, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Phyllis Green, Margaret Keelan, Karen Koblitz, Marilyn Levine, Elsa Rady, Lisa Reinertson, Nancy Selvin, Anna Silver, and Sandy Simon mark a substantial break in artmaking from their predecessors.

More Than a Meal – Airline Meal Service Sets 1960s – 1980s

More Than a Meal - Airline Meal Service Sets 1960s - 1980sTo provide a restaurant-style inflight dining experience, airlines also considered the tableware comprising the meal service set. They carefully conceived their chinaware, flatware, and glassware for presentation, utilization, storage, and durability. Manufacturers often created tableware bearing the airline’s service mark or logo, as well as unique patterns related to national origin, destination, or service promotions. This exhibition presents eight airline meal service sets from the 1960s to the 1980s, along with menus and images of inflight meal services from the time.

California Modernist Women – Groundbreaking Creativity

California played a central role in the formation of a modern American aesthetic during the mid-twentieth century. Decorative arts and design reflected exciting new technologies and forms of expression. As modernist artists and designers looked beyond traditional methods and towards the future, some also found inspiration in the handmade qualities of crafts. Many of the Golden State’s most innovative artists and designers were women who faced great adversity due to prevailing gender inequality. The most determined women pushed forward, driven by enthusiasm, strength, and creativity.

Japonisme: A Passion for Japan
Terminal 2
Departures Level 2, Gallery 2

May 04, 2022 – Apr 02, 2023

Japonisme - Dragon Vase - SFOFrench author Philippe Burty (1830–90) coined the term Japonisme in 1872 to describe the new fervor for all things Japanese,following Japan’s opening to international trade after a prolonged period of isolation from the West. The increased visibility ofJapanese art and design overseas profoundly affected European and North American audiences as ceramics, ukiyo-e woodblock prints, metalwork, lacquer ware, fans, and textiles flooded Western markets. Japonisme permeated fine and decorative arts, interior design, and graphic arts. Artists such as Vincent van Gogh (1853–90) and James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834–1903) were deeply inspired by Japanese art. American silver manufacturers including Tiffany & Company and the Gorham Manufacturing Company were determined to create metalwork as fine as Japan’s. English potteries took heed of Japanese designs to create a plethora of new patterns.

Betty Woodman Ceramics

A New Look at a Groundbreaking Ceramics Artist – Betty Woodman
This major solo exhibition—the first of the artist’s work in New York in six years—brings together a group of ceramic sculptures rom a critical and career-defining period in Woodman’s practice. Anchored by the installation “Conversations on the Shore”(1994)—which was last shown in the late 1990s as part of an exhibition tour which originated at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam—the works on view include a number of wall-mounted and free-standing sculptures, each engaged in a range of conversations about materials, history, function, architecture, sculpture and painting.

CALLS FOR ENTRY AND OPPORTUNITIES

GRANT

The Center for Craft is excited to introduce a new grant opportunity, the Teaching Artist Cohort.
Applications are due November 30, 2022.
Twenty-one mid-career craft artists will receive an unrestricted grant of $10,000 and participate in an 8-month cohort experience where they will be guided through training that encourages and sustains a generative practice as both artists and educators.

For over 25 years, the Center for the Craft has supported craft research and artists through our grant programs. As we consider the current challenges faced by artists, it is evident that many artists who teach are financially under-compensated and need time away from teaching to advance their practice. Uniquely positioned to support the sustainable career paths of artists and to advance the understanding of craft, this grant will award a dynamic group of 21 mid-career teaching craft artists a one-time,unrestricted grant of $10,000.

The Center for Craft Teaching Artist Cohort will also participate in an 8-month experience where they will be guided through training that encourages and sustains a generative practice as both artists and educators. The Center intends to develop and strengthen a network of craft artists through peer-to-peer learning and connection to enrich the impact on their communities.

After the Gold Rush

From: Kim Patillo afterthegoldrush1@outlook.com

Hi Everyone,
Hope you’re all as grateful as we are to be seeing some of our favorite shows starting up again! And that includes the 48thAnnual ‘Gifts ‘n Tyme Holiday Faire’ to be held on Nov. 18, 19 & 20 in the Chardonnay Hall at the Napa Valley Expo in Napa. As we told you earlier this year we’re turning the reins over to Chelley at Eckerstrom Productions, but she and we will be working closely together this year to bring back the awesome event it’s always been. Chelley intends to keep the layout, format, and holiday feel of the show as it’s been in the past; she was a vendor at the show for many years herself. Advertising has already began, including reserved billboards on Hwy 29 and banners all around Napa as always.

If the show is not full, we will jury once a month till full. Chelley and we will do the jurying together, and if you’re a past participant that would like. There are no refunds once accepted into this Fair.

Kim & Mark, After the Gold Rush

You can download applications from the website: www.afterthegoldrushfestivals.com or email us & we’ll send you them. Call us at 925-372-8961 anytime.

President’s Message

Cheryl Costantini - Board President ACGASeptember I marvel at how the light changes and lengthening shadows offer the suggestion of Autumn as we brace for Indian Summer. Even with climate change, our turning planet and its relationship to the sun do still seem like something we can count on.

I find it interesting to note that though the seasons remain so much the same, the ways in which we sell our work have, for some, changed dramatically. Unimaginable doors have opened and offer us access like no time before! The options that are available now are truly astounding, I am humbled by the ever-changing potential possibilities. As creatives, I encourage us all to embrace even more deeply and more authentically this world. It is to that end that we on the ACGA board are rethinking the way in which communication both between ourselves as members as well as our customers and the works of social media.

The ACGA board is diligently working on a way to access the power of the Internet and potential communication streams to reinvent the way we communicate with each other as well as our ever growing customer base.

We will soon be announcing a new trial system that will change the look and formatting of the newsletter and offer more opportunities for artists to communicate and market their work. This new system will offer our members additional opportunities to reach out to the Clay and Glass community and those who love to purchase Clay and Glass. It will offer each of us more opportunities to post directly to a calendar and digest, our events, musings, exhibitions etc.

Stay tuned.

I am struck by this dichotomy of life. So much changes and yet so much remains the same. I like it. It keeps us on our toes and encourages us to seek our own internal balance… good stuff for sure!

ACGA Exhibition News

ACGA Clay and Glass Festival 2022

We Want to Share News About the 2022 ACGA Clay & Glass Festival

Successes:
Our preliminary sales total (before corrections) = $353,656 and with 96 artists in the show, that works out to average sales of $3684. This is not quite as astounding as the 2021 total sales (average sales = $3979), but still a very strong show for most artists. Reconciliation is underway, and letters will be mailed to those who had a math mistake. April will send an updated financial report when reconciliation is done. From the perspective of management (Messenger Events), artist check in & load in generally went very smoothly this year. Annie appreciated the communication and flexibility with artists arriving on site who wanted to make tweaks to their booth spaces (communication is key).

In case you missed the memo, Annie purchased the Giant Creative business from Chris at the end of 2021, and gave it a new name, Messenger Events. Congratulations to Annie! Ren and her social media Festival volunteers did an amazing job (88,000 impressions!) and netted us approximately 250 more followers on IG and 300 more on FB. She’s continuing to post to keep our audience growing. The ACGA Board’s Communications Team is developing plans to publicize ACGA member events year-round (open studios and gallery exhibitions, etc) on ACGA channels. Stay tuned to the ACGA google group email to learn how you can participate!

Challenges:
We’re not so happy about the two missing fire extinguishers – we had to pay the rental company $358. We’re thinking of ways to keep better track of them next year. This year, instead of muddy ruts in the lawn, we had some dirt patches where tree stumps were ground down – but at least they were dry. On a living park grounds, there are always going to be some changes as trees die or need major pruning, or an irrigation pipe needs to be replaced.

Lastly, we heard that an artist yelled at a PAAC staff person and that someone else refused to follow PAAC rules when informed. Folks, we cannot afford to alienate the art center staff. They work hard to make it possible for us to occupy their building and grounds for three days, and without their goodwill our show is toast. Please, let’s all honor our social contract (and our artist contract) and be respectful and patient rather than unpleasant in our dealings – with everyone.

Thank you for listening,
April for ACGA

Donor Profile: Jan Schachter

Jan Schachter - Cerf This month we’re pleased to profile Jan Schachter, a studio potter from Portola Valley, California, who is one of CERF+’s most active and committed volunteers and donors. Jan served on the CERF board from 1992-1997 when Lois Ahrens was the director and only employee. During that time, Jan organized a major fundraising
auction for CERF+, in which she invited artists from across the country to donate artwork. Today, thanks in part to all of Jan’s work, CERF+ is a robust organization making a difference for artists in communities across the United States and its territories. Jan continues her critical work, advocating and fundraising for CERF+ by organizing the annual benefit sale of artwork donated by members of the Association of Clay and Glass Artists (ACGA) for the California Fund at CERF+ during their annual July Clay and Glass Festival in Palo Alto in July.

Thank you, Jan, for your exceptional creative spirit, dedication, and generosity to CERF+. CERF - Artist Disaster Relief Fund

Sara and Thomas Post

“Dear Art Friends,
I’m sorry to have been unavailable for several months. Spring and summer have been difficult. In mid May, we lost my husband and fellow artist, Thomas Post. Our family has been taking a little quiet time to begin to adjust to this new reality.

Tom was so many things to us–artist, husband, father, and friend. Direct and kind, he was known for his thoughtful generosity, sly jokes and subtle humor. These qualities shone in his art work, in elegant, unadorned ceramics, in surrealistically manipulated photographs and in inventive sculptures employing interesting ideas, unexpected materials and beautiful surfaces.

We worked collaboratively and with a varying team of wonderful artists for many years at TSPost Ceramics in Davis. We also had separate interests and in the past ten years worked primarily in our own studio spaces exploring individual directions. We shared an exhibit, “Habitat” at Dolphin Gallery in Gualala, California in March, 2022.”

Paula Ross Passed

Paula was a member of the Berkeley Potters Guild for many years in the 80’s and 90’s, holding a place well remembered not only for her sharp, hilarious New York wit, but also for her loose, experimental and creative ways with terra cotta. With an artful hand, her surface decoration, one of simple, freely drawn lines incised through lusciously colored slip, was filled with sensual gesture.

Paula was creative, hard working, resourceful, funny, independent, and willing to jump in to help when needed. Staying focused with her clay work, she also took the time to engage in greetings and perceptive conversation when she arrived at the studio each day. She truly understood something about being
human together in a natural way.

From the ACGA. I know she has left her postcards before at the Guild and at Leslie’s… i didn’t know her well though but some of you may… -Chanda

Celebration of Paula Ross – 1943 – 2022

August 5 – 7, 2022

It is with bittersweet sentiment we announce a special event at ACCI Gallery. Paula Ross, a well loved ceramic artist and one of the earliest members of ACCI passed away last February. ACCI has been given the privilege of selling Paula’s remaining ceramic work in a special legacy sale this August. The celebration kicked off with a reception Friday August 5th, followed by a two-day exposition and sale of her art. Many of the pieces for sale are unique and have not been seen by the public for many years, possibly even decades.

Maggie Gao-Gehlmann

Maggie Gao-GehlmannI create functional pottery that can be used daily. I hand craft my pieces using slab building techniques.
I then hand paint with underglazes and glazes. All of my designs are original that reflect my love for animals and Nature.

Mayer Schacter Passed Away

Dear friends and potters that have been in ACGA awhile. I have sad news that Mayer Shacter passed away…after a brief bout with pancreatic cancer. Mayer was my mentor as well as my husband. I became his apprentice in 1973. He was juried into the association in 1974 and was an ACGA president in the 1980’s. He had a wonderful ceramic career for 30 some years. He sold to top galleries all over the country and had one of those prize one man shows at Garth Clark in New York. He remarried to a well known author, Susan Page, and they created a beautiful life in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. They bought an old hacienda and converted it into a showcase home and gallery. He shifted from being a potter to a world class collector and dealer in indigenous folk art. Collecting had always been his passion.

I remember going to flea markets and Mayer had a knack for finding that gem in a pile of junk. His wife Susan and son Gabriel were there with him. He will be greatly missed.

Catalog: Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay
Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay – Exhibition Overview

Amoca - Breaking Ground

The American Museum of Ceramic Art is proud to present the exhibition and accompanying catalog Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay, celebrating 44 artists who have defined—and redefined—ceramics over the past 100 years. Many of the Golden State’s most innovative and impactful ceramic artists in the 20th and 21st centuries are women who faced adversity due to gender inequality and were often ignored or overlooked in favor of their male counterparts. These incredibly determined women pushed forward, driven by creativity and tenacity.

Breaking Ground highlights the significant shifts in California ceramics over several generations of women artists. The story is told in three sections, using the artist’s “breaking ground period” (rather than their date of birth) to determine their place in history. The story begins with trailblazers Laura Andreson, Betty Davenport Ford, Stefani Gruenberg, Vivika Heino, Elaine Katzer, Mary Lindheim, Martha Longenecker, Gertrud Natzler, Susan Peterson, Ruth Rippon, Susi Singer, Helen Ritcher Watson, Marguerite Wildenhain, and Beatrice Wood. These artists laid the groundwork for the field and inspired successive generations of artists.

The second section includes a disparate group of artists who explored—or are exploring—the female figure, feminism, and the creation of the perfect form. Works by Judy Chicago, Dora De Larios, Roseline Delisle, Viola Frey, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Phyllis Green, Margaret Keelan, Karen Koblitz, Marilyn Levine, Elsa Rady, Lisa Reinertson, Nancy Selvin, Anna Silver, and Sandy Simon mark a substantial break in artmaking from their predecessors.

Trailblazer. Rebel. Revolutionary.

Edith HeathDiscover the story of Edith Heath, founder and designer of Heath Ceramics. Heath transformed the ceramics industry, creating dinnerware from California clay for “Sunday best” and everyday use. Driven by the power of good design, and a commitment to her craft, Heath’s vision continues to live on through her stoneware and tile over 70 years later. Durable, not delicate, simple, yet stylish, Heath Ceramics is an icon of American design.

This is not a traditional ceramics or craft exhibition – it combines historic objects, photographs,
documentary video and personal memorabilia to showcase Heath’s legacy and story. Do not miss it!

We affirm the sovereign rights of their community as First Peoples and are committed to supporting the traditional and contemporary evolution of the American Indian community and uplifting contemporary indigenous voices and culture.

The San Francisco Arts Commission is committed to creating a city where all artists and cultural workers have the freedom, resources and platform to share their stories, art and culture and where race does not predetermine one’s success in life. We also acknowledge that we occupy traditional and unceded Ohlone land. Fueled by these beliefs, we commit to addressing the systemic inequities within our agency, the City and County of San Francisco and the broader arts and culture sector.

Hi Everyone,
Hope you’re all having a great summer and are as grateful as we are to be seeing some of our favorite shows starting up again! And that includes the 48th Annual ‘Gifts ‘n Tyme Holiday Faire’ to be held on Nov. 18, 19 & 20 in the Chardonnay Hall at the Napa Valley Expo in Napa. As we told you earlier this year we’re turning the reins over to Chelley at Eckerstrom Productions, but she and we will be working closely together this year to bring back the awesome event it’s always been. Chelley intends to keep the layout, format, and holiday feel of the show as it’s been in the past; she was a vendor at the show for many years herself. Advertising has already began, including reserved billboards on Hwy 29 and banners all around Napa as always.

The first jurying deadline will be August 1, so if you haven’t sent in your application, now would be the time to do so. If the show is not full, we will jury once a month till full. Chelley and we will do the jurying together, and if you’re a past participant that would like the same space, please make sure to state that on your application. The application is attached. You will be notified by the end of August as to acceptance/rejection. There are no refunds once accepted into this Fair.

Any questions, please contact Chelley at information@eckerstromproductions.com.
Thanks for reading, and have a great summer season & happy shows!
