ACGA May Newsletter 2020

President’s Message

The degree to which this spring feels like a true awakening cannot be understated. The contents of this newsletter alone mirror the reopening of our precious world, offering so many opportunities to reconnect and explore anew again.

The dormancy of the past year presented us with great challenges as well as opportunities. We know things now that we did not before, including an entirely new vocabulary, Zoom, PPE, flatten the curve, PPP, a Pod, and the saddest of all, social distancing. We were all forced, on some level, to rediscover resiliency. I believe we grew, if even just a bit, despite the many sadnesses. Seeing this growth in so many of my friends, family and fellow artists has been wonderful. I have experienced it myself as I dove more fully unto my work than ever before in my life, and did so without the constant deadlines of wholesale orders and shows. It felt great!

So, as we cautiously step forward, re-entering and returning to that which we once took for granted, my hope is that we hold onto the quiet that this period has offered and learn to be more conscious, compassionate and creative. Wishing you all a peaceful spring.
Cheryl Costantini

ACGA Online Exhibition – Garden Art

Garden Totems - ACGA Online ExhibitionMarch 1 – May 30, 2021
We are excited to announce the upcoming online exhibition, “Garden Art”, featuring clay and glass pieces made by ACGA artists for use and display

This is not a sale. However, we will provide visitors with a main link to each artist’s website or shop. Please stroll through our first online exhibition to enjoy an amazing range of outdoor pieces made by our members. Your virtual garden tour will bring you one step closer to spring!


The Festival Committee is excited to announce that the Clay & Glass Sale will be happening on Sept. 11-12, 2021!
Giant Creative and the Palo Alto Art Center are on board, and we are starting to work out the details.

Important Points:
• We expect a great show after missing 2020, but this year will not be like other years. Please modify your expectations, and find the silver lining in the changes that are needed to make this event viable.

• Due to COVID-19 uncertainties, we have simplified the event. We all need to be prepared to be flexible as California reopens this summer, things could change by September.

• We will all be adhering to the city and county guidelines for safe outdoor retail sales.

• For now, we have to call it the ACGA Clay & Glass Sale (county regulations). The booth fee is $260 plus 15% of sales (cap at $7,000 remains in place)
• Most important – please be kind, gentle and respectful with our partners at Giant Creative, the Art Center, the committee members and each other.

The event application and booth map is being updated and will be emailed soon to all Festival-eligible artists. We hope to hold an online jury in May or June; look for an email with more info about jurying if you are interested in becoming a Festival-eligible artist. If you have ACGA artist friends who do not tend to check their email, please spread the word!

Thank you,

The Festival Committee (Jan, Lee, Joe, April, Mari, Sally, Miki, Diane)

NCECA 2022 Sacramento trailer video:

NCECA 2022 SacramentoWe are so looking forward to the NCECA conference coming to Sacramento in March next year. ACGA has decided to apply for a booth at Gallery Expo at the convention center. Gallery Expo features unique, high-quality works in clay, including functional, decorative, and sculptural.

Lynne Meade

Lynne Meade ceramics
For many years I have been teaching ceramics classes for adults. The pandemic changed that. During this year off I have had time to concentrate on my work and my business. It has changed everything. My art and business it took off in ways I never expected. Now I will be taking an extended and perhaps permanent break from teaching. But I find that I miss my students.

So, I am asking for a favor from my former students. If you have ever taken a class or workshop with me, please post a photo of yourself, or one of thinking of this as a sort of retirement party. Thank you in advance if you respond.

Catharine Hiersoux

Catharine Hiersoux - ceramicsWe are excited to announce the release of the retrospective book Herein Lies the Magic, The Life and Work of Ceramic Artist Catharine Hiersoux. For those of you who don’t know Catharine, she was also a former president of ACGA back in the 1970s. She was committed to promoting the Association and its existence. She strongly believed that it wasn’t enough just to throw pots and ferry them back and forth to the fairs. It was crucial to make a contribution tot he larger community if one was to expect to elevate ceramics from the usual perception of a craft form to a true medium of the arts in the marketplace.

To purchase your copy of this beautiful book, go to and click on the BU NOW button. We can ship the book or, if you prefer, you can pre-arrange to pick up your copy of the book at her gallery in Berkeley. Catharine can be contacted at .


Please visit ACGA’s EVENTS/WORKSHOPS page for a complete list of upcoming classes and workshops.


NOTE: Some of the dates/activities may no longer be correct,; be sure to contact the organizer to confirm.


“One Nest” investigates balancing what is good for human beings with what is beneficial for other species and the planet – our one nest, our only home, and a shared one. Recognizing that all life and ecosystems on our planet are deeply intertwined, we share these impressions in clay, ink and light. We believe in art as agency for change. Artists, historically, have been both witnesses and the raw material for envisioning the future in challenging and critical times. These ARE critical times. It is critical that we do our art. It is critical to make the peaceful revolutionary changes that allow the world to repair. Look closer with us.

Marc Lancet - ceramicsApril 30 – June 13, 2021

The search for the figure has inspired sculptor Marc Lancet’s artistic practice for decades. Harkening back to ancient goddess figures from prehistoric Europe, Japan and pre-colonial Africa, Lancet builds totemic female figures on a grand scale. Always aiming for wonder and mystery over realism and planning, he produces abstracted figures full of emotional depth. Equally full of sentiment are Lancet’s ceramic masks, in which found objects add expressive facial features and wry character. Each figure is fired using as ancient wood firing process, in which ash from burning wood deposits on the surface.

Ocean Ecology and CraftCraft in America
Making Waves: Ocean Ecology & Craft

Craft in America Center is pleased to present a dynamic virtual exhibition of more than fifty mixed media works made by eleven artists from across the U.S. who depict the beauty of our
seas and confront various ecological and human-generated threats.

Ocean Ecology and CraftMaking Waves focuses on artworks that celebrate and champion our oceans. These gathered objects shed light on the impact of climate change on the bodies of seawater across the planet, the hazards to life within them, and their vitality to our survival. Along with all that we have the past year, the ongoing and surmounting climate crisis remains one of the largest existential and physical threats to life on Earth. From global warming and rising ocean levels to microplastics, carbon emissions, and overfishing, the issues are numerous and urgent. The group of artists featured in this exhibition use various craft media to reflect the richness of the natural world that exists underwater. They remind us about the need to protect these resources before we are left with nothing more than their artistic likenesses.

Museum plans to re-open in June!

Thanks to two anonymous gifts totaling $150,000, designated as a dollar-for-dollar challenge, the Museum began work on a long-overdue renovation project during the pandemic closure. This is the first capital improvement project since the completion of Exhibition Gallery B in 2016. Existing spaces will be reimagined, including a much-needed expansion of the education and lecture space; a new kids makerspace; a collection study room with open storage displays; a reading area; and new accessible restrooms. These new and renovated spaces will support the educational and outreach offerings that make AMOCA such a vibrant, diverse, and unique institution and community.

We hope to be far enough along in the renovation to open the museum in June with a new exhibition “Don Reitz: This is Not a Dress Rehearsal”. Additional information on opening dates and hours will be shared through AMOCA’s website and e-news.

Beth Ann Gerstein Executive Director

June is approaching, and with it, AMOCA’s reopening! Until you can visit in person, join us for one last month of virtual engagements.

Off Center Blue Line ArtsOff Center

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 currently closed in accordance with county and state health orders.

Duck Out Calvin MaThe 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.
