Inaugurated in 1932 at the Everson, the Ceramic National juried exhibitions helped shape the course of ceramic history and launched the careers of many notable ceramic artists. This special exhibition showcases more than 70 pieces drawn from the Ceramic National exhibitions, all of which are now part of the Everson’s acclaimed collection.
