The Clay Studio

Graduate Student Exhibition

For the past 14 years The Clay Studio has honored the best graduate student work in ceramics programs across the country through The Graduate Student Exhibition. Over over $15,000 has been awarded to more than 30 emerging artists. Fifteen participants have gone on to become Clay Studio Resident Artists, two as Shapiro Fellows. This exhibition serves to identify the best emerging ceramic artists, provides a forum for the exhibition and sale of their work, and offers support and affirmation to students just beginning their artistic journey.

This year there will be three awards with monetary prizes! Work should be for sale. The exhibition will run from June 2 - July 16th. Work is due at The Clay Studio by May 22nd. Artists are responsible for shipping to The Clay Studio, if the work does not sell, return shipping costs will be covered by The Clay Studio.

Continuing as a biannual show, the next iteration will occur in June 2017. The deadline to apply is April 22, 2017. Submit your application here
