Event Details

There's an art to everything, even AGMs!

Join us for our special panel discussion on contemporary ceramics practice!

We are trying something new this year and, as an Affiliated Society of the Powerhouse Museum (PHM), we have booked the PHM Theatrette which can hold up to 100 attendees.  

After our fast and efficient AGM, we will jump straight into a vibrant discussion about ceramics with our facilitator Kate Jones and some very special guests.

Kate Jones (artist, TACA Director and teacher at the School of Clay and Art in Melbourne) will be joined by John Dermer from Victoria (currently enjoying the limelight with his retrospective at the NGV), Tania Rollond (artist and teacher at NAS), Alana Wilson (a Sydney artist who creates handmade vessels with experimental glaze technology) and another 1 or 2 surprise guests 

Kate will start with a short introduction sketching out the breadth of the field of ceramics, and the possibilities of different ways to engage in it. She will then facilitate a conversation about how each of the people on the panel place their practice in that very broad field.

After the panel, join us for a chat, some drinks and nibbles.
