Interested in starting your own ceramics collection? Join us for a collector’s seminar inspired by the exhibition Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise, led by decorative arts and appraisal expert Sarah Campbell Drury. Participants will learn about hallmarks of Arts and Crafts studio pottery and how to identify markers of authenticity and artistic quality through a curator-led tour of the exhibition, a lecture, and a hands-on appraisal demonstration.

Seminar participants will also have the option of taking an exclusive tour of the Tennessee Craft Ceramics Fair on Sunday, September 25, with Teri Alea, executive director of Tennessee Craft, and Susan DeMay, a working artist who teaches at Vanderbilt University. On the tour, Alea and DeMay will provide information on collecting contemporary ceramics and introduce participants to artists working in different styles.
