4/30/17 Brooklyn Ceramic Tour Event 

Katsumata Chieko, Potiron rouge: Red Pumpkin, 2010, Collection of Leslie and Alan Beller
JASA is pleased to announce a visit to the Brooklyn homes of two collectors of contemporary Japanese ceramics on Sunday, April 30. 

We will be visiting the homes of Leslie and Alan Beller and Steven Korff and Marcia Van Wagner

Steve Korff's collection was featured in an August 17, 2016 New York Times article,  which noted "This simple house ...keeps the more than 400 sculptural vases, bowls, sake cups and flasks that have quietly made him one of the leading collectors of contemporary Japanese ceramics."  Selections from the Bellers' collection have appeared in museum exhibitions (such as the 2015 San Antonio Museum of Art show on Japanese Contemporary Ceramics). Gallerist Joan Mirviss will be present at the Bellers' home to answer questions about their collection and, after the visits, the Bellers will kindly host a reception.

The number of participants is limited to 20 due to space constraints

JASA has arranged for a bus to leave from the Asia Society (Park Avenue at 70th Street) at 1 pm and leave Brooklyn to return to Manhattan at 6 pm on April 30. 

Please note that the homes are not wheelchair accessible and that the visits will require the climbing of some steep stairs. 

Visit Fee: $40
