Call for Entries: “Clay Speaks- Juried Exhibition”

Are you interested in exhibiting work at Clay on Main?

Are you an artist working in ceramics?

“Clay Speaks” is the first of what we hope to be an annual tradition of bringing together regional ceramic artists for a juried exhibition at Clay on Main.  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. We seek to invoke a meaningful artistic conversation among artists and artistic disciplines.
