The March/April issue of the American Art Pottery Association Journal anticipates their upcoming Cincinnati Convention, Pottery Show and Auction with an emphasis on Rookwood pottery.
Shown on the cover is a detail from a 1929 pot by Wilhelmine Rehm. Articles include the expansion of the Moore Gallery of Decorative Arts at the Krannert Museum on the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana campus with, among other ceramic pieces, 9 Rookwood vases.
Vellum, 1905, Sara Sax
Another article informs us of a major exhibit of Rookwood in October at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibit celebrates “the gift of one hundred pieces of Rookwood pottery” to the Museum from the collection of Gerald and Virginia Gordon of Washington, DC. “The gift…includes several prints and vellum tiles, as well as a wide array of painted, carved, molded and slip-decorated vases characteristic of the finest Rookwood production.”A terrific issue of the bi-monthly! Information on the Journal, back issues and the upcoming convention (though it is too late to register) can be found on the website of the AAPA.
I've watched CNN for hours and have watched several Saddam's tumble. The shot that was everywhere yesterday is nowhere today. The Saddam in question is the black speck in the center, right and up a bit. Of course, I guess, there is the very slim chance that the statue is not of Saddam but of a highly respected equally mustached wannabe henchmen...maybe.
