Natasha Dikareva – Certain About Uncertainty
December 3 – January 15, 2021
The only wisdom is what we let go of trying to know.
Comfort must be born from the uncomfortable.
You don’t need legs to walk, nor ears to hear.
For in the unknown, there is nothing to fear.
This exhibition has moved online and goes through January 15th. You can browse her pieces at the link below.

Since reopening in early October, the museum has enthusiastically — and safely — welcomed back thousands of visitors to connect with the healing and inspirational power of art.
However, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and in accordance with state and city health and safety directives, the Asian Art Museum will temporarily close to the public until further notice.
All virtual events will continue as planned and you can shop online at the Cha Museum Boutique — which is a great way to support the museum.Continue to check our website for updates and follow us on Facebook or Instagram to learn about upcoming virtual events and programs.
While we are temporarily closed, we encourage you to #MuseumFromHome and engage with art at a distance. The Website https://asianart.org/ has a list of digital experiences to keep your spirits up and the inspiration flowing.

Blue Line Arts
Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BCE, people have been fascinated with clay. Today, artists continue to astound us as they push the boundaries of our preconceived ideas of what ceramics represent. From playful pieces disguised as everyday objects, to finely detailed vessels, ceramics delights and surprises us in its evolution.
Whether you work in a more traditional style, or prefer completely outlandish creations, we showcase your vision and techniques from around the world during this annual show.

The Crocker Art Museum
The Crocker Art Museum is delighted to welcome to its collection “Duck Out,” a gift from Bay Area sculptor Calvin Ma, whose ceramic, toy-like figure is suspended in the moment of fight or flight.
“Duck Out” joins “Around and Around,” another sculpture by Ma, in the Crocker’s renowned collection of international ceramics. Through both
sculptures, Ma gives form to his experience with social anxiety, a disorder that impacts nearly 15 million American adults who experience a persistent, intense fear of being judged by others.
