“Forbidden Fruit,” an exhibition of large works in porcelain by Chris Antemann, continues at the Crocker Art Museum through Sunday, June 25.

The artist in 2012 was invited to collaborate with master artisans of the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory in Germany, which led to her 5-foot version of an 18th-century banquet. She uses the Garden of Eden as a metaphor in the work, which is populated by semi-clothed revelers around a banquet of forbidden fruit.

Other porcelain pieces are on exhibit as well. 216 O St., Sacramento; museum entry $5-$10, free for members and children 6 and under; 916-808-7000; www.crockerart.org
