American Pottery Festival

September 8 - 10, 2017

Join us as we kick off our fall season with the 19th annual American Pottery Festival, our annual fundraising benefit. Heavyweight artists from across the country will offer a sneak peek inside their wheelhouses with crowd-worthy lectures and panel discussions, rousing gallery chats, slam-dunk demonstrations, and outstanding ceramic wares. NCC promises another round of rewarding interactions with some of your favorite clay makers, as well as some legends in the making. 

Each year, the event includes artists from large and small markets around the country, from all career stages and ages, and some local gems. The richness of experience, knowledge, and generosity represented by 2017’s artists will provide learning opportunities for everyone, from student to collector to fellow maker. The weekend is always filled opportunities to engage directly with artists during image presentations, workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and casual gallery chats.

The APF Preview Show is your first chance to see a sampling of work from each 2017 artist. It is on view in the Sales Gallery from April 6 – May 7.
