Clay Heritage: Lyons and Chamberlain Collections Gallery 2

3 August – 9 September 2000

A separate, concurrent exhibition, Clay Heritage, highlights two very important research collections – the Dr R J Lyons Collection of South Australian Ceramics and the Chamberlain Collection of Ceramics – recently gifted to the University of South Australia Art Collection.

The collections include ceramic works from the period of settlement in South Australia through to the 1980's, a cohesiveness which permits the tracing of traditional ceramic skills and design over a period of 150 years, and revealing much about the economic and cultural aspects of South Australian life.
