Clay Speaks Submission Fee



Welcome and thank you for your interest in exhibiting your work at Clay on Main for our juried show, “Clay Speaks.” This exhibit is the first of what we hope to be an annual tradition of bringing together regional ceramic artists.  This year’s jurors are Constance McBride and Jeff Dietrich. We are looking for stimulating (functional or nonfunctional) clay-based artwork that turns toward ceramics as a fine art medium.
