Event Navigation

The 2019 Bunting Biennial Ceramics Weekend takes place on February 15 and 16, and offers a fresh format that puts an emphasis on creating.

The weekend kicks off with an Artist Talk by New York-based ceramicist Joan Bankemper. Transforming traditional tableware into whimsical vessels, Bankemper creates her sculptures using hundreds of ceramics from collected molds. Join us after the talk for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and some time to explore the ceramics collection in the galleries.

Saturday brings a day filled with art making, offering pop-up maker stations where visitors can create sculptures and mosaics. Tours of the ceramics collection will take place throughout the day, and a potter will demonstrate his throwing techniques on a pottery wheel. Museum Studio School attendees will have the special opportunity to take part in a Master Class led by Joan Bankemper. Mark your calendar and join us for Clay Days!

The Bunting Biennial Ceramics Weekend is supported through the generosity of the Bunting Family.
