Gardiner Signature Lecture Series: Wednesday, September 28 at 6:30 p.m.
Clark will present Reinventing Ceramics: New Paradigms for Clay in Art at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum. This “fast paced multi-media presentation” will cover new creative and marketplace paths for ceramics in design, architecture, art and technology. Think of this talk as your survival guide on collecting, curating and making a living in the new ceramic marketplace.

He appears a few days later as part of a panel discussion at LACMA’s Beyond Bling: Jewelry Matters. He’ll be speaking with Kerianne Quick, assistant professor of Jewelry and Metalsmithing at San Diego State University. The conversation will be moderated by Glenn Adamson, an independent scholar from New York City.
Keep your ears open for Garth’s “Last Lap” lecture tour, coming up soon as a C-File fundraiser. It only visits 12 venues and includes a long-awaited “New markets” seminar for studio ceramics and crafts. Act quickly when it is announced so your institution can be part of this historic final tour. When it’s over, it’s over.
