The Coral Gables Museum debuted the Ceramic League of Miami’s 65th Anniversary Exhibit on Friday, Sept. 4, during the monthly Gallery Night Live event at the museum. The exhibit will be on view through Sept. 27 in the Museum’s Abraham Family Gallery.
“One of our goals at the museum is to partner with local arts organizations to host community-based exhibits and events that promote the organizations, their talented members and the wonderful work they do in our community,” said Christine Rupp, director of the Coral Gables Museum. “We are very proud to bring this beautiful show of original works to the public.”
Founded in 1950, the Ceramic League of Miami is a non-profit organization dedicated to continuing education of the public and membership in the art of ceramics, craftsmanship and the promotion of career development for its professional members.
“The craftsmanship of today, as seen in this exhibit, will stand the test of time and have long-lasting appreciation. I am pleased that the Coral Gables Museum and the Ceramic League of Miami are educating the public about clay and recognizing the many contributions of clay to the world around us. I am very grateful for the opportunity to jury the show and pleased to contribute to the community as a whole.” said guest juror Jane Prentiss.
Prentiss is director of Skinner’s 20th Century Design Department and Director of Antique Motor Vehicles. She began her association with Skinner in 1973, as a collector with a particular focus on objects from the Arts and Crafts Movement and other material from the late 19th Century and early 20th Century.
