NCECA is coming to Minnesota in March 2019! There will be an abundance of opportunities to exhibit work, many of which have application deadlines rapidly approaching. Stay tuned here and visit our Facebook page for upcoming deadlines.  

Deadline extended to December 15th - NCECA 2019 Exhibition at Homewood Studios in Minneapolis!

Homewood Studios www.homewoodstudios.com will be hosting a concurrent exhibition for the 2019 NCECA conference, Claytopia, in Minneapolis. The gallery is proposing an exhibition featuring ceramic artists whose work displays a unique artistic voice informed by their past careers and experiences outside of clay.

Five Minnesota artists will be represented in this show, and each will be asked to invite another artist, from outside of Minnesota, whose work they feel is unique and who also has enjoyed a non-ceramics career before commencing their clay work.  Selected artists will be invited to place 3-4 pieces in the exhibition.
