movie day: The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art



Over the last 25 years, Linda Leonard Schlenger has amassed one of the most important collections of contemporary ceramics in the country. This exhibition features over 80 objects from the Schlenger collection by leading 20th-century ceramicists—including John Mason, Jim Melchert, Kenneth Price, Lucie Rie, and Peter Voulkos—alongside works in other media from the Yale University Art Gallery’s permanent collection by artists such as Hans Hofmann, Willem de Kooning, Isamu Noguchi, Mark Rothko, and Edward Ruscha. Although critically lauded within the studio-craft movement, works by these ceramicists are only now coming to be recognized as integral to the wider field of contemporary art. By interspersing these exceptional examples of the medium with other objects from this period, including painting, sculpture, and works on paper, this exhibition aims to reexamine the position of postwar ceramic sculpture within the context of contemporary art, highlighting the formal, historical, and theoretical affinities among the works on view.

call for exhibition proposals NCECA

Prospectus For 2018 Concurrent Exhibition Proposals
DEADLINE: Wednesday, February 1, 2017 (EST)

52st ANNUAL NCECA CONFERENCE: CrossCurrents: Clay and Culture
Wednesday March 14 – Saturday, March 17, 2018
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Overview
The exhibition and expansion of contemporary ceramic practice will include diverse approaches to ideas and senses of materiality involving clay and process. NCECA’s annual conference is enriched by the innovation and vision that emerges from our community to present ceramic art of the highest caliber in the form of Concurrent Exhibitions (CEs). These exhibitions make ceramic art visible and accessible to communities in which the conference is based. Concurrent Exhibitions also provide a platform for participating artists to engage with the global audience of ceramic enthusiasts to expand, challenge, and celebrate critical and aesthetic horizons of art made with clay. NCECA promotes Concurrent Exhibitions through the print conference guide, app, website, Blog and social media. While NCECA makes efforts to cluster the shows within art/ cultural districts to maximize viewer attendance, it is not able to guarantee that all exhibition venues will be included on tour routes.

2018 Exhibitions Focus
NCECA seeks exhibition proposals that incorporate clay as the principal medium of expression and have conceptual resonance with the theme of its 52nd annual conference, CrossCurrents: Clay and Culture. The conference will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in March 2018. Cross-currents within Pittsburgh’s three rivers are traversed by 446 bridges. These natural and cultural features are vibrant metaphors for the intersectionality, significance, and experience of different cultural constructs. Traditions and innovations coexist throughout the ceramic medium’s history. Our creative work with ceramic art in the 21st century can be a catalyst to generate dialog and empathy. When art grapples with change through underrepresented ideas, new models of creating, teaching, and learning, it has the capacity to crystalize experiences of diversity and notions of community. Through these exhibitions, NCECA hopes to share and promote innovative approaches to ceramic art that explore and highlight the experiences of diverse cultures within a dynamic society.

international residency opportunity: Montana State University

Summer residency Sessions at Watershed


Watershed’s summer sessions provide time and space for small groups of up to 15 artists to step away from their daily routines, immerse themselves in their work, and make new connections within the clay community.  During a residency, artists work independently in our large communal studio.  Most of the summer sessions are organized by artists—who propose a theme related to clay and recruit four to eight other artists to join them. The balance of participants in a session (seven to ten more artists) register here on our website, drawn by a shared interest in the session theme. Once in residence, all of the session’s artists work side-by-side in the Watershed studios.

During a summer session, you will have unlimited time to work and dialog in the studio alongside other artists-in-residence, along with 3 delicious meals a day, and comfortable accommodations in shared or private housing. When reviewing session options, consider choosing a theme that resonates with you, whether you want to delve more deeply into that focus or follow your own path of inquiry once you are here.

Watershed residencies are filled on a first-come, first served basis.  Simply fill out the registration form and submit your deposit.  Visit our housing and fees page to review the costs of attending a residency.  Please note that all artists are required to live on campus during a session. For those interested in applying for merit-based or need-based financial aid, the yearly application deadline is February 15 with awards announced in mid-March.

View details on their website on each of our 2017 summer sessions and register early to reserve your spot.

The combination of an uncorrupted point of view, a strong imagination, overflowing curiosity, and the desire to push boundaries creates a very special mindset particular to children. The adult world, by contrast, restrains the formally infinite imagination by imposing responsibilities and practical concerns. Society puts limits on the way we, as individuals, can perceive things, and as an artist I an interested in expanding these confines."

technical tuesday with @floriangadsby


"Faceting the bowls posted yesterday. I'll quickly trim the outsides to remove any throwing rings, these have a tendency to throw off the spokeshave, the wooden tool I'm using with a sharp blade in the middle and make my cuts less consistent. The difficulty with these is catching them just at the right moment in terms of dryness, they need to be just on the harder side of leather hard. Once these have been faceted I'll score and slip a lug handle onto one side. I've found this particular piece quite challenging, the faceting process can be really irritating as one wrong cut can wreck the pot." #pottery #ceramics #ceramic #clay #liveauthentic #craft #craftsmanship #handmade
