Dr. Kurt Gitter and Alice Yelen-Gitter’s collection of contemporary Japanese pottery forms the exhibition New Forms, New Voices, on view through May 13. Join Asian-art Curator Lisa Rotondo-McCord as she moderates a conversation that will engage the couple in stories about their passion for Japan and its art, and the friendships they have formed with many of the ceramicists.
