Those with a love of ceramic arts may know that Northern California artists pushed the medium into new terrain in the 1960s. Artists like Robert Arneson, whose “Eggheads” sculptures are scattered throughout the UC Davis campus where he taught, left functionality behind to create more expressive artistic works. In that tradition, the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art (CCACA) hosts its annual ceramic sculpture conference, where art lovers can explore more than 40 student and professional exhibits and gain insight through artist demonstrations, lectures and face-to-face meetings with nationally recognized talents.
