The Clay Studio

The Marge Brown Kalodner
Graduate Student Exhibition

The Clay Studio will begin accepting applications for The Eleventh Annual Marge Brown Kalodner Graduate Student Exhibition on February 1st 2014

The Clay Studio will host The Eleventh Annual Marge Brown Kalodner Graduate Student Exhibition in August 2014. Any student currently enrolled in a Graduate Program with a focus in ceramics or graduating from a Graduate Program with a focus in ceramics in 2014 is welcome to apply. Works may be mixed media, but clay must be the primary medium. We encourage submissions from artists working in all types of and all approaches to clay, as our primary goal is to represent the exciting diversity within this medium. Three cash prizes will be awarded. The Marge Brown Kalodner Prize of $1000.00, The Jeff Guido Prize of $500.00, and The Amy Sarner Williams Prize of $500.00

Over the past ten years, this exhibition has awarded $15,000 to 30 emerging artists. It has showcased the work of over 150 recent MFA graduates, the majority of whom have participated in additional exhibitions at The Clay Studio. Fourteen participants have gone on to become Clay Studio Resident Artists, two as Shapiro Fellows. This exhibition serves to identify the best emerging ceramic artists, provide a forum for both the exhibition and sale of their work and to offer support and affirmation to artists just beginning their journey.
