A-B Projects is a space for the exhibition of work by artists who are expanding and redefining the field of ceramics. I founded A-B Projects in 2015 in Claremont, CA, where I was the Lincoln Visiting Professor of Ceramics at Scripps College. In 2018, I relocated the gallery to the renowned Bendix Building in Downtown Los Angeles, alongside a hub of a dozen other art galleries (including TSA LA, Monte Vista Projects, POST, Track 16, Durden & Ray, JOAN, Chateau Shatto, and more). Exhibitions and guest lectures at A-B Projects have given hundreds of students and community members access to contemporary ceramics thinkers from across the country.
