AMERICAN ART POTTERY; VARIATIONS IN CLAY
Please join us for a conversation on American pottery led by speaker David Rago, Designer and Co-Director at Rago Arts and Auction Center.
Presented by the Delhom Service League.
David Rago, nationally recognized expert on the decorative arts of the nineteenth and early twentieth century and popular appraiser on the Antiques Road Show, will team with Barbara Perry, former curator of decorative arts at the Mint Museum, in a dialogue on the pottery of the Arts and Crafts period in the United States. They will discuss what makes pottery Arts and Crafts or not, and compare various potteries in relation to the Arts and Crafts ideals.
The Delhom Service League is the ceramics affiliate of The Mint Museum. It was organized in 1972 by Mellanay Delhom, who came to the Mint with her historical collection in 1967. Our mission is to create and nurture interest in ceramics, from ancient to contemporary. Multiple programs include talks by curators and other experts in the field of ceramics, and visits to museums and private collections, and focused ceramic studies. The annual Potters Market Invitational (coming September 10, 2016), featuring outstanding potters from across North Carolina, showcases the depth and breadth of ceramics in The Pottery State. Funds raised by this fall festival help support acquisitions to The Mint’s ceramics collection. For inquiries and membership, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704.337.2021.
