There are two windows on the south wall of the space. The maximum size for an object is 9.5’ x 5.5’.

Proposals can be for solo or group exhibitions. Proposals incorporating original or unique pieces made specifically for exhibition at NCC or in response to the space are most likely to be considered.

NCC will require that artists or guest curators deliver work to be included in the exhibition to the Clay Center and assist with both installation and de-installation. NCC will provide promotion for the exhibition and a reception for the public.
