Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with curator and scholar Wendy Gers. She has curated numerous international exhibitions including the First Central China International Ceramics Biennale in 2016 and the Taiwan Ceramics Biennale in 2014. In our interview we talk about the dynamics of curating, the award-winning exhibition Post Colonialism?, and how ceramic studios might join the Green movement by applying best practices for environmental management. To see examples of her curation visit www.wendygers.org.
On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have Savannah Clay Community’s SIP cup show. Artists are invited to submit up to three drinking vessels to be juried by Renee Lopresti for their annual cup show. This year’s exhibition is taking place all-online and the deadline for submissions is midnight EST on March 31st, 2021. For more information visit www.savannahclaycommunity.com.
