For applicants to the Jerome Ceramic Artist of Color Residency, we are happy to announce a partnership with Springboard for the Arts for complimentary application consultations.
Consultations cover a variety of goals and skills for artists of all ages and career levels, including self-taught artists, students, and established artists. Topics for your consultation might include:
The McKnight Artist Fellowships for Ceramic Artists Program is designed to strengthen and enhance Minnesota’s artistic community, as well as significantly advance the work of Minnesota ceramic artists whose work is of exceptional artistic merit, who have already proven their abilities, and are at a career stage that is beyond emerging. Two grants of $25,000 each will be awarded annually.
Northern Clay Center is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015 Warren MacKenzie Advancement Awards: Stuart Gair (Lincoln, NE) and Jacob Raeder (Chicago, IL). The grant period for each artist’s research and continued education is through May 20, 2016.
Northern Clay Center’s Emerging Artist Residency programs (the Fogelberg Fellowship, now in its 9th year, and the Anonymous Potter Studio Fellowship, now in its 5th year) are designed to provide emerging 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.
NCC is excited to announce a new residency opportunity: the Jerome Ceramic Artist of Color Residency Program, beginning in 2016. This new, year-long residency will provide studio space, an honorarium, educational opportunities, and a funded trip to the 2017 NCECA. One Minnesota-based ceramic artist of African-American, Asian, Latina/o, Native American, Pacific Islander, or another under-represented descent will receive the award.
