Application Deadline: McKnight Artist Residency for Ceramic Artists

May 22, 2020 | 5:00pm

The McKnight Artist Residency for Ceramic Artists program, in its 23rd year at NCC, intends to recognize and support mid-career ceramic artists whose work demonstrates exceptional artistic merit and who have already proven their abilities in the field. The program is intended to provide these ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for three months at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work and, at the same time, exchange ideas and knowledge with Minnesota ceramic artists. Up to three, 3-month residencies will be awarded in 2020, to take place during the 2021 calendar year, through a competitive application process. NCC will invite one or two other artists through a nominative process.

Each resident artist will receive a $6,000 award (for a three-month residency), studio space provided at no cost, and a glaze and firing allowance. During the residency, each artist will present a public lecture, for which they will receive an additional honorarium. At the culmination of the grant period, recipients will be featured in a catalog and group exhibition at Northern Clay Center. The exhibition will also travel to 3 – 5 sites around the state of Minnesota. Recipients are also required to submit a final report at the end of the grant period.

The deadline to apply for the 2020 McKnight Artist Fellowships and Residencies for Ceramic Artists program is Friday, May 22, 2020 by 5 pm

This program is made possible by the generous support of The McKnight Foundation, Minneapolis, MN. The McKnight Foundation, a family foundation based in Minnesota, advances a more just, creative, and abundant future where people and planet thrive.
