Northern Clay Center congratulates the recipients of the 2013 McKnight Artist Fellowships and Residencies for Ceramic Artists. Recipients of $25,000 fellowship awards are Keisuke Mizuno (Robbinsdale) and Kimberlee Joy Roth (Minneapolis). Recipients of $6,000 residency awards are Claudia Alvarez (New York, NY); Sanam Emami (Fort Collins, CO); Ryan Fletcher (Kansas City, MO); and Sarah Heimann (Lebanon, NH).
Northern Clay Center announced today the names of three Minnesota artists who each received 2013 Jerome Ceramic Artists Project Grants. $6,000 was awarded to each of the following artists: Michael Arnold (Minneapolis), Karen McPherson (Minneapolis), and Ginny Sims (Minneapolis)
The primary medium for each of these artists is clay. However, their individual explorations range from locally-excavated, slip-cast forms to “living” sculptures that incorporate plants onto ceramic surfaces to modern-day majolica designs.
