Ceramic Market 2022
An event of historical and cultural importance for the town of Andenne. The Cultural Centre of Andenne is pleased to announce that the Ceramic Market will now take place every year on Whitsun weekend. It is moving to the Place des Tilleuls (opposite the Town Hall) and the Promenade des Ours to offer a better visibility and to make the logical link to the Lighthouse which houses the new Ceramics Museum.
The next edition will take place on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 June 2022 at the same time as the Ceramic Art Andenne exhibitions. Guest of honour: the French ceramist Charles Hair.
About Ceramic Art Andenne
The ceramic event was created in 1988 and called “Let’s see a pot” during its first two editions, quickly attracting an audience of connoisseurs and renowned artists. The event became known as the Biennial of Ceramics in 1992 and the organisation was assumed by the Cultural Center of Andenne. Not being a biennial any more, the name has changed to Ceramic Art Andenne.
Ceramic Art Andenne is fully dedicated to provide visibility to the art of ceramics. It is a special place to talk, discover, touch, hear and see what is happening in the world of contemporary ceramics in its diversity of forms.
Tickets for Ceramic Art Andenne 2022 cost €16. Entry at the Ceramics Market is free.
