An important Japanese ceramics and pottery collection—the most comprehensive of its kind outside Japan—is coming from Switzerland to New York's Bard Graduate Center for Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture. "Quiet Beauty: 50 Centuries of Japanese Folk Ceramics From the Montgomery Collection" examines the country's reverence for this centuries- old medium. The array of 100 objects includes jars, grinding bowls, flasks, alcove ornaments, and vases dating from 3000 BC to 1985 AD. A Bizen-ware sake bottle dating from the Momoyama period (1568-1615) is considered the best example of its type in the world. March 27– June 15; 212-501-3000; bgc.bard.edu.
