Ceramic Showcase Update

Ceramic Showcase is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, which is changing rapidly. The health and safety of our members and patrons is our top priority and we are working to make well-informed decisions.

Governor Brown has announced a four week ban on events of more than 250 people. Because Ceramic Showcase is 7 weeks away (May 1-3), the show is scheduled to proceed as planned. However, it could be canceled by outside agencies such as Oregon Convention Center (OCC), the city of Portland or the state of Oregon. We will keep you updated with information as it becomes available.

As we continue to plan for Ceramic Showcase, here’s what you need to know.

  • We will have hand sanitizing stations throughout the show and in the sales area.
  • Frequent hand washing will be encouraged.
  • We will ask any members and patrons who are feeling ill to please stay at home.
We will continue to stay in communication with the OCC, as well as monitor information from city, county, and state officials. We are also following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

We thank both members and patrons for your ongoing support. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Dawn Panttaja at lostdolls@hotmail.com.

    As an incident of spreading the risk of contamination to vulnerable populations is likely to grow not diminish at this point, I vote we cut our losses early and work on staying healthy and containing the virus.
