Pancoe Art Education Center




Pancoe Art Education Center

The Pancoe Center was established to further the techniques, forms and conventions of clay, while encouraging experimentation in contemporary medium, concepts and techniques. Artist in Residence Hiroshi Sueyoshi works in a fully-equipped, on-site studio focused exclusively on clay.



Ceramic Collection

Display cases exhibit ceramic works from the museum collection and include historic to contemporary artwork, and occasionally special exhibitions. The ceramics gallery is available to visitors during open hours in the Pancoe Center.
