28th Annual California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art (CCACA 2016)
April 29 – May 1, 2016
Davis, CA
Festival & Conference Dates: Friday, April 29, 2016: 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. (Opening reception 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.); Saturday, April 30: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; Sunday, May 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

CCACA brings the ultimate ceramic sculpture event to Davis, CA from April 29th – May 1st, 2016. In an intimate setting, you can interact with top artists in a way not possible at other venues. UC Davis, home to the late sculptor Robert Arneson, was instrumental in defining a new direction for ceramic art. Enjoy delightful downtown Davis and be inspired by nationally recognized ceramic art talents.

With over 40 participating schools from throughout California, CCACA is one of the largest and most diverse ceramic events in Northern California. Demonstrations, lectures, student exhibitions—no other event delivers more inspired knowledge of ceramic sculpture for a better price. Meet face-to-face with distinguished ceramic sculptors you might only read about; see and hear from the artists what makes them top in their field. This is a chance to surround yourself with the top ceramic art and artists of today and the ideas of the artists of tomorrow.

Featured artists include Christa Assad, Clayton Bailey, Susan Beiner, Paul Mathieu, Beth Lo, Michael Lucero and James Tyler. Fresh from Burning Man, James Tyler will lead a demo of his colossal brick head installation. This year’s conference also features a public art component where participants are invited to participate in a hands-on calico cat mosaic demo. Join us and be a part of the biggest ceramic event of 2016!

“This is the kind educational, intellectual event one expects from museums or universities, but which public institutions seem less and less able to provide.” – ARTWEEK
