The Clay Studio National 2018

May 26th - Jul 15th, 2018

The Clay Studio National is a biannual exhibition showcasing the full range of ceramic art being made in the United States now. Through this juried exhibition we highlight a diverse range of work, from functional to sculptural, and from traditional production techniques to cutting edge manufacturing technology.

Our esteemed guest juror this year is Beth Ann Gerstein, Executive Director of the American Museum of Ceramic Art.

Congratulations to Mark Goudy, who has been awarded the Ceramic Arts Network Merit Award for his piece, "Experience Objects."

In a wonderful review of this exhibition by Artblog, Deb Krieger writes:

"There’s a tug-of-war between my appreciation for the appearance of ceramic artworks and my desire to rub my hands all over them. Luckily, The Clay Studio National, which consists of submissions from all over the United States, provides plenty to activate both impulses.... The Clay Studio National has something for everyone, from both classic and boundary-pushing uses of the medium to explorations of important societal themes."

Opening Reception: First Friday, June 1, 5 - 8 pm
