Its one of my favorite times of year. The trees are starting to bud, the temperature is rising and its time for the annual gathering of clay nerds, known as NCECA. Last year was a great year for exhibitions. I saw about 30 exhibitions in and around Phoenix. Lots of good pots and a pretty happening Sergei Isupov show.
This years conference will be in Philadelphia. The city has a strong tradition of ceramics which promises to up the ante for this years conference. Click Here to see an very well designed digital program for the conference.
I am excited to be participating in two exhibitions this year. The first is the National Juried Student Exhibition. Matt Long and Erin Furimsky juried this survey of the American educational scene. It will be held at The University of the Arts Rosenwald- Wolf Gallery 320 South Broad St. The second is Off the Wheel: A showcase of Slab-built pots for the Table and Home. It will be held at the Chestnutt Hill Academy 500 West Willow Grove Ave.Cheyenne Rudolph curated this show which features Sam Chung, Marc Digeros, Allison McGowan, Sandi Pierantozzi, Amy Scher, Liz Zlot Summerfield, Cheyenne and myself. This promises to be a good show. I am going to post images of all the participating artists. Here is the show card.
