Palos Verdes Art Center / Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education is pleased to announce Water, Earth & Fire, an exhibition celebrating ceramics as a powerful creative force and expressive mode of communication.

Guest curator Jo Lauria continues PVAC’s 90-year tradition of presenting significant contemporary art by assembling innovative works by leading Southern California artists that address the theme of WATER in its many manifestations and mythologies. In an additional gallery, we honor the legacy of the ceramics studio established in the late 1960s by showcasing the talented artists associated with the program, former and current instructors, and workshop leaders, many achieving international acclaim.

Jo Lauria is a Los Angeles-based curator, author, and educator who received her curatorial training at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She is a specialist in the fields of craft, design, and decorative arts. She has organized many museum-based surveys and national touring exhibitions and has authored several major publications in her field.
