Out And About

Had a chance to go out to the Pomona Arts District, home of the American Museum of Ceramic Art last night for the reception of the current show, "On The River Through The Valley Of Fire ~ The Collaborative Ceramics of Frank Boyden and Tom Coleman". I have been a fan of Tom and Elaine Colemans work, but WOW is all I have to say about this show and Frank Boydens work. If you have a chance go see the show!
Around the corner from AMOCA is the Armstrong Gallery with thier current show "The Pomona Tea Party". Amazing stuff here too, my favorite are the more traditional Japanese Tea Bowls, something I have been exploring lately. The second saturday of each month is Art Walk night in the Pomona Art Colony. Its a great way to spend an evening, great art and food!

Wow, very spectacular. I saw a couple of these pots posted on flickr too. I also went to Armstrong Gallery site via yours and saw some other talented ceramic artists' work too. So many talented artists.

Hi Miri;
I wanted to get the names but it was so crowded it was tough to get good pictures let alone names!
