Virtual | Reading at the (Art)Table – ‘Edith Heath: Philosophies’

March 13 @ 2:00 pm

Edith Heath: Philosophies book cover
11am PT / 12pm MT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET

Join us on Sunday, March 13 at 11am PT/2pm ET for our next Reading at the (Art)Table program, where we will be discussing “Edith Heath: Philosophies.”

Trailblazer. Rebel. Revolutionary. Discover the story of Edith Heath, founder and designer of Heath Ceramics. Heath transformed the ceramics industry, creating dinnerware from California clay for “Sunday best” and everyday use. Driven by the power of good design, and a commitment to her craft, Heath’s vision continues to live on through her stoneware and tile over 70 years later. Durable, not delicate, simple, yet stylish, Heath Ceramics is an icon of American design.

This book was created as a complement to the current exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California.

Virtual | Reading at the (Art)Table – ‘We Flew Over the Bridge: The Memoirs of Faith Ringgold’

11am PT / 12pm MT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET

Join us on Sunday, January 9 at 11am PT/2pm ET for our next Reading at the (Art)Table program, where we will be discussing “We Flew Over the Bridge: The Memoirs of Faith Ringgold.”  We look forward to having a lively discussion!

In “We Flew over the Bridge,” one of the country’s preeminent African American artists—and award-winning children’s book authors—shares the fascinating story of her life. Faith Ringgold’s artworks—startling “story quilts,” politically charged paintings, and more—hang in the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and other major museums around the world, as well as in the private collections of Maya Angelou and Oprah Winfrey (among others).

Her children’s books, including the Caldecott Honor Book “Tar Beach,” have sold hundreds of thousands of copies. But Ringgold’s path to success has not been easy. In this gorgeously illustrated memoir, she looks back and shares the story of her struggles, growth, and triumphs. Ringgold recollects how she had to surmount prejudices as she worked to refine her artistic vision and raise a family. At the same time, the story she tells is one of warm family memories, sustaining friendships, community involvement, and hope for the future.

Virtual | Reading at the (Art)Table – ‘Just Us: An American Conversation,’ by Claudia Rankine

2pm ET | 1pm CT | 11am PT

Join the Northern California Chapter’s Reading at the (Art)Table book group for a discussion of our latest book selection, “Just Us: An American Conversation,” by Claudia Rankine. With essays, poems, and images, Just Us is an invitation to discover what it takes to stay in the room together, even and especially in breaching the silence, guilt, and violence that follow direct addresses of whiteness. Rankine’s questions disrupt the false comfort of our culture’s liminal and private spaces – the airport, the theater, the dinner party, the voting booth – where neutrality and politeness live on the surface of differing commitments, beliefs, and prejudices as our public and private lives intersect.
