Application Deadline: Emerging Artist Residency
The Emerging Artist Residency program encompasses two unique Fellowships, designed to provide up to three ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for one year at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work, as well as exchange ideas and knowledge with other ceramic artists.
Each residency recipient will have a furnished studio space with 24/7 access to NCC’s facilities from September 1, 2020, to July 31, 2021. In addition to the workspace, each fellowship includes an annual materials and firing stipend and professional development and enrichment opportunities through NCC’s education, exhibitions, and sales gallery programs, for qualified and interested fellows. A group exhibition featuring work produced during the fellowship period will take place in January 2022, at Northern Clay Center, at the conclusion of the grant period. Recipients have the opportunity to present a brief slide lecture on their work in conjunction with the exhibition.
The Anonymous Artist Studio Fellowship will be awarded to two emerging ceramic artists working in a functional, sculptural, relational, or installation-based manner. Fellows will share a furnished studio space with 24/7 access to NCC’s facilities. The Fogelberg Studio Fellowship will support one emerging ceramic artist who is a Minnesota resident, working in a strictly functional manner, and interested in pursuing a career in studio pottery.
These programs are made possible by generous contributions from several anonymous donors, as well as various secondary market sales at Northern Clay Center, with the intention to nurture the creative expression of aspiring ceramic artists.
The deadline to apply for the Emerging Artist Residencies is Friday, April 17, 2020, by 5 pm.
