Participation of other artists - “Our goal with the project is not only to highlight the art of each of the chosen potters. We want to contribute to rescue the importance and beauty of Ceramic Art as a traditional expression of regional art and culture ”, says Lani Goeldi, curator of Online Ceramic Art Festival.

Lani Goeldi adds that Oswaldo Goeldi Cultural Artistic Association will acquire a work by each of the participating artists and artisans. And, on a date not yet defined, will hold an exhibition - physics, and not virtual - from this collection at the headquarters of the Association, in Taubaté.





According to her, the actions developed by the project will spread and preserve the clay modeling tradition and lead the participating public to understand and practice the clay modeling procedures. In addition, it is also expected that the project will also arouse interest in “ordinary people” in the practice of art in clay.

In this sense, in addition to recording the work of ten important Brazilian artists and artisans, Online Ceramic Art Festival will also count on the participation of amateur and professional artists from all over the country. An online exhibition will be held, with digital photographs of ceramic pieces sent by artists.

Interested parties must register and send photos of their works by day 28/02/2021. The regulation with information for registration is available on the website of Artesanato Brasil, in artesanatobrasil.org.br.
