National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (CO), International Call for Submissions, NCECA 2019 Annual: The Form Will Find Its Way
Deadline: June 20th, 2018, 11:59pm MDT
About the NCECA Annual: The NCECA Annual blends impactful attributes of invitational and open juried models of exhibition development. The vision of a single curator generates an organizing concept for the exhibition and invites five leading artists in the field whose work serves to build out and expand on the exhibition’s conceptual framework. The curator then makes selections of additional works and artists for the exhibition through an open call for submissions.
Juror: Elizabeth Carpenter is an independent curator, writer, and educator. Curator of visual arts at the Walker Art Center from 2001-2015. Currently a Lecturer in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota where she teaches art history and theory, Carpenter holds a B.A. in English from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, M.A. in Art History from the University of Minnesota, and M.Phil. in Art History from the City University of New York Graduate Center (CUNY).
Eligibility: Submission of works for consideration is open to the broad field of ceramic art. Artists must be over 18 years of age and not matriculating for a degree in higher education. (NCECA provides a platform for student artists in the NCECA Juried Student Exhibition which will take place at the Soo Visual Arts Center.) NCECA membership is not a requirement of eligibility, however, NCECA members receive a discount on entry fees. Members entry fee is $20, Non-Members entry fee is $35.
Media: All works must be… primarily ceramic. Mixed media works will be accepted only when clay is the dominant material. Video featuring clay or ceramics will be juried; the link provided must be anonymous, any reference to an applicant’s name will disqualify participant from jurying;
