Event Description Join us for an informal walk-through of The Great Ceramic Revival with guest curator, Peter Held. Everyone is welcome!

In the course of Peter Held’s impressive three-decade career as a museum director and contemporary art curator, he has organized more than 200 exhibitions, including seven national traveling shows. Held is the author of numerous articles on contemporary art and craft and is the editor of, and an essayist for, 10 books on the subject.

Acknowledged as a national authority on modern and contemporary studio ceramics, he has received three of the highest accolades possible within the field: the Ceramic Lifetime Achievement Award from the Friends of Contemporary Ceramics (2007); the Smithsonian’s James Renwick Alliance Distinguished Educator Award (2014); and the National Council for Education on the Ceramic Arts Honorary Member Award (2014).

Held received a Bachelor of Science in studio art from SUNY Brockport, a master’s degree in museum studies from Oregon State University, and a certificate in appraisal studies from SUNY Purchase in partnership with the American Society of Appraisers. His extensive network of art colleagues worldwide provides for invaluable resources to guide client needs.

Today Peter leads Peter Held Art Appraisal. Peter Held Art Appraisals & Associates is a national client oriented full-service personal property firm specializing in modern and contemporary art and fine craft appraisals. All reports are compliant with the American Society of Appraisers, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
