Artist Spotlight: Donna Ray, BISQUE Resident

BISQUE stands for Believe, Include, Sustain, Question, Understand, and Evolve. BISQUE is also a metaphor for makers in the early stages of development. NCC is proud of this new experimental residency program inspired by our desire to cultivate new voices in the field. As a community-based ceramic art center, NCC is in a unique position to have access to pre-emergent talent and invited Donna Ray to be the first BISQUE Resident Artist.

Northern Clay Center is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 McKnight Artist Fellowships: Kelly Connole (Northfield, MN) and Guillermo Guardia (Saint Paul, MN). Connole investigates memories, raw instinct, and elements of the natural world to create work that celebrates the tactile temperament of clay and connection to other beings. Guardia explores political and social issues relevant to his personal experiences, informed by the events in his life and the places he has lived.
