Conversations in Clay exhibits works by members of the New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists (NMPCA) who were encouraged to create visual conversations.
In some cases artists worked together integrating conversation into the process from the conception through the production. Individual entries by single artists are also included, along with one-sentence “conversation starter” descriptions.
The exhibit will open with an artists’ reception 5-7 p.m. Friday at Fuller Lodge Art Center.
The NMPCA holds an exhibition every year in various locations called the “Celebration of Clay” where members submit their work to showcase the variety and depth of ceramic art being created in our state. This year’s award jurors, Ken Nebel, Monika Kaden and Debra Fritts, will select recipients of cash awards, including Best of Show, Awards of Merit and the UNM Arita Porcelain Department award for Beauty, Quality and Functionality.
Demonstrations and gallery talks by the New Mexican Potters and Clay Artists in conjunction with the Conversations in Clay exhibit at Fuller Lodge Art Center will be held in the gallery and Ceramic Studio, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29. Meet the artists, watch them work, hear their stories. This event is free
