CR ceramics staff to exhibit works at San Francisco art fair

College of the Redwoods Art Professors Shannon Sullivan and David Zdrazil, as well as CR Ceramics and Sculpture Studio Technician Ryan Hurst are included in the Ceramics Annual of America 2011 Exhibition and Art Fair at Fort Mason, Festival Hall, San Francisco, California.

Exhibition Dates are from October 7-9, with a opening reception on October 6, from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

The Ceramics Annual of America (CAA) is an ambitious exhibition and art fair spotlighting the quality and diversity of contemporary ceramics from around the world including works from China, Korea, Mexico, Australia and Italy. The only event of its kind in the United States, its goal is to encourage the education and enrichment of the public, cultivate a fertile art market, and foster dialog between collectors and makers of ceramic sculpture.

CAA is the largest exhibition and art fair that is entirely focused on ceramic art in America and is modeled after the Ceramic Biennials held in Europe, Korea, Japan and China. It provides a venue for the top regional and international artists working in the clay medium to show their work to a broader audience of collectors.

The exhibition will be held in the 50,000 square ft. Festival Hall at Fort Mason, capable of accommodating as many as 10,000 people. A popular attraction for countless national and international visitors to the city, Fort Mason still resonates with the presence of the California Funk movement of the sixties and seventies that inspired ceramic greats living in San Francisco today.
