Ceramics Panel Discussion: New Technology in an Age-Old Art

Monday, June 5, 7-8:30pm

Computer technology enables seamless, hands-free production of ceramic objects, allowing precision form and exact reproduction. But what is the downside to the loss of tactile interaction between ceramics artist and materials? Does smart technology further an artist’s reach or stand between artist and inspiration? When does handmade transition to computer-generated? Does it matter? Enjoy an evening panel discussion among recognized ceramics artists, including those exhibiting in Columbia’s 50th ARTrospective June exhibition in Columbia Art Center.
