Solo Show at the Frank Lloyd Gallery

Voulkos showed ceramic work including five stacks, two ice buckets, thirteen plates, six teabowls, about a dozen prints and a large bronze version of his early 1959 ceramic sculpture, Sevillanas, at the Frank Lloyd Gallery in Santa Monica, California. The show opened November 6th and was on view through December 30, 1999. It was a great way to end the year 1999!

The gallery produced a poster, pictured at left, which is available for $10. Please email or call the gallery at (310) 264-3866 for more information. You can access an online review of the show by Los Angles art critic, Christopher Knight, “Voulkos' Vessels Stack Up as Monumental Gems” in the archives of the Los Angeles Times website as well as an online review by Andy Brumer at Artscene magazine's website.

Take an online tour of the installation at the gallery on this website. Also, now in the Portfolio section are “slide shows” of Voulkos’s stacks called Bowling Green, Amaya and Siguirilla.




Solo Show at Mussi Artworks Foundry & Gallery

The inaugural exhibition in the newly built gallery space at Mussi Artworks Foundry and Gallery in Berkeley, California featured early expressionistic paintings from the 1950s and 60s and recent drypoint etchings and cast bronzes by Bay Area artist Peter Voulkos along with a series of bronzes. Perhaps most well known for his ceramic work, Voulkos has created a body of bronze works from a selection of his stacks, plates and ice buckets and one of his models for his large bronze sculpture, Sirius.

Also on view was the premiere showing of his bronze sculpture based on his 1959 clay sculpture, Sevillanas, which broke in the Loma Prieto earthquake of 1989. Comprised of some thirty-five works, the exhibit opened September 7, 1999 and ran through the 26th.

A catalogue of the bronzes is available. See the Publications section on the left for for more information. Voulkos' bronze works can currently be seen on the Mussi Artworks Foundry website and now in the Portfolio section of this site, there are “slide shows” of one of Voulkos’s bronze stacks, S4, his sculpture, Sevillanas, and two of his bronze ice buckets.

Voulkos' Little Big Horn,


Modern Odysseys: Greek American Artists of the 20th Century

The Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, NY presented an exhibition of Greek American artists who have contributed to modern and contemporary art. Three of Voulkos's works, Little Big Horn, a 1959 ceramic sculpture; his bronze model of Sirius, 1977 and his 1989 woodfired stack called Belvidere, were among the works on exhibit. Curated by William Valerio and Peter Selz, the exhibit opened October 9, 1999 and was up through January 30, 2000. The show then traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art of Thessaloniki in Greece where it was on view from September 2, 2000 to December 3rd. Little Big Horn, was shown only at the Queens Museum of Art venue.

An exhibition catalogue featuring essays by Selz and Valerio along wiith biographies of each of the artists was produced for the show and may be purchased from the Museum Shop on the Queens Museum website.

The Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento hosted a group exhibit of 21 artists of California working in wood, fiber, glass, enamel, metal and clay. Organized in conjunction with the Creative Arts League of Sacramento and curated by Jan Driesbach, it included five woodfired ceramic works by Voulkos made in the last ten years. His stacks entitled Tsunami and X-Neck as well as an ice bucket and two plates were represented. The 1997 Voulkos woodfired plate pictured at left was in the Crocker Museum of Art exhibition. This exhibit was on view October 29, 1999 to January 2, 2000.

A 124 page catalogue with color reproductions of works in the show documents all of the past shows sponsered by the Creative Arts League as well as this current one and may be obtained directly from the Crocker Art Museum.


Untitled Stack, 1981

The Art of Craft: Contemporary Works from the Saxe Collection

The de Young Museum of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco mounted a large show of over 200 works from the collection of George and Dorothy Saxe in June 1999. Composed of glass, clay, wood, fiber and metal objects, four Voulkos ceramic works were shown among them one each of his early woodfired stacks, ice buckets and plates and a 1996 stack called Yogi. The 1981 woodfired stack pictured on the left was in exhibit at the de Young Museum. The show closed in October but since these are among promised gifts to the de Young, the museum-going public will be able to enjoy them in future shows.

A 270 page, profusely illustrated exhibition catalogue with text by curator Timothy Anglin Burgard is available from the de Young Museum. Read David Bonetti's review online in the San Francisco Examiner.
