The Clay Studio


Graduate Student Biennial 2017

June 2 through July 16, 2017

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