Press Release

White Columns is pleased to present CCCC (Ceramics Club Cash and Carry).

This project is a fundraiser with 100% of all profits going to Planned Parenthood, White Helmets, and Critical Resistance.

The exhibition will empty as the ceramics are purchased… (cash and carry).

Ceramics Club was started in 2007 by Trisha Baga and Pam Lins at The Cooper Union as a group interested in using ceramics as a way to socially interact, make material, collaborate, and see what happens from there.

The group models itself on propositions gleaned from amateur “clubs” that in organizing, were interested in dismantling and opposing professionalism – withdrawing distinctions regarding quality, institutions, representations, etc.

Since 2011, the group has met and been generously supported by Greenwich House Pottery in the West Village.

This CCCC project was lovingly cobbled together by:

Ricci Albenda

Trisha Baga

Cliff Borress

Lea Cetera

Lucky DeBellevue

Marley Freeman

Rochelle Goldberg

Kathryn Kerr

Pamela Lins

Sara Magenheimer

Keegan Monaghan

Nicholas Parker

Krista Peters

Lucy Raven

Halsey Rodman

Saki Sato

Adam Welch

and more…with a generous gift from Fidelity Paper & Supply Corp. and printing support by LQQK Studio.
