To celebrate the new digs, Heath will be showing the work of yet another ceramic sage, Akio Nukaga. The renowned Japanese artist will be displaying his fresh exhibit, titled “Very New Work.” While the event will be Heath’s first gallery showing, the reception is, and we quote, “all about Akio.” Also, don’t forget to bring an appetite, as beer, wine, and a delicious array of treats will be served.
And if you just can’t get enough, the fete continues the following day with Nukaga giving eager onlookers a very special throwing demonstration. So, show up early to get a good view of the method behind his magical creations!
When: Opening Reception, Saturday, July 14, 5 to 9 p.m.; Throwing Demonstration, Sunday, July 15, 2 p.m.
Where: Heath Ceramics, 2900 18th Street (at Florida Street), San Francisco; 415-361-5552.
