Quarto, softbound (stiff, slick, illus. wrappers), 83 pp. Very Good, with light edgewear. From Preface: Ceramics & Society: Making and Marketing Ancient Greek Pottery is an exhibition of firsts for the Tampa Museum of Art. The Museum's classical collection was inaugurated by the Friends of the Arts in 1981 with the purchase of a magnificent Greek krater. Slowly at first, the Museum beganreceive gifts but it was the purchase of the Joseph Veach Noble collection of 164 pieces in 1986 that established the Museum's collection as one of the leading Greek and Roman collections in the country. The stature of the collection and the reputation of its first curator, Dr. J. Michael Padgett, aided the Museum in securing major loans from institutions as well as significant gifts. Now, for the first time, the Tampa Museum of Art presents an important thematic exhibition built around its own collection and enhanced by significant loaned works from major American museum collections. Ceramics & Society is Dr. Pamela Russell's first comprehensive curatorial effort for the Tampa Museum of Art as its Curator of Classical Art. The exhibition, with its concentration on technique and process, squarely places these objects into the realm of everyday life rather than how contemporary society views them as art. One year in the making, Ceramics & Society is the first in a series of exhibitions planned by Dr. Russell, each organized around a theme to expand our knowledge and appreciation of our own collection. Each will be accompanied by a scholarly catalogue and programs.
