The vases in this exhibition, from Virginia collections, were selected to display not only a variety of subjects and shapes, but also the principal techniques used to decorate them. Arranged in an approximate chronology, starting with prehistoric pottery and ending with high classical-era red-figure pottery, Athenian Potters and Painters was organized in connection with the international conference Athenian Potters and Painters III.  The labels and wall texts were written by the students of Professor John Oakley in the Department of Classical Studies at the College of William & Mary.
