Cowans + Clark + DelVecchio Auctions will be in Chicago with their ceramics sale at Hotel 71, November 4 & 5.  The first day, November 4th, called Legends: Material Masters, features 50 works from post 1945.  The next day, Modern Ceramic Art & Design highlights the work of studio ceramicists.  There is a wide range of work in both auctions and something for everyone's price range.  While you're in Chicago, don't miss SOFA - the show of Sculpture, Objects and Functional Art, held at the Navy Pier .  For more information visit our calendar of events.  Take a look at the work of Jessica Stoller below.  I was introduced to her ceramic figurines in the booth of Like the Spice Gallery from Brooklyn, at a contemporary art show this summer.  From a distance, I thought it was early Meissen from the mid 18th century.  Speaking with the gallery owner, Marisa Sage, I learned that Ms. Stoller used the same techniques as the Meissen factories did...but take a closer look at the figurines - they are not what you would expect from the 18th century!  If you're in Newtown Ct. this week, don't miss the exhibition CREATURAL created by Tarol Samuelson and Carol Rizzo.  These wonderful animals are sure to make you smile.  From past to present to future...techniques are passed on through generations of artists...Meg
