2019 Sales Gallery Submissions

Application Deadline: May 17, 2019

Northern Clay Center will conduct its biennial review of Sales Gallery artists in June 2019. The review allows for both a consideration of work by new artists, and a reevaluation of work presently in the Sales Gallery. Artists who are juried into the Sales Gallery may be represented year-round, during the Holiday Exhibition, for a Featured Artist show, or all of the above. A panel of NCC staff and non-staff individuals who are knowledgeable of ceramics, art, design, and retail, will jury the work.

Interested artists should submit the following materials to the Clay Center by May 17, 2019:
