We are pleased to welcome back Ann-Charlotte Ohlsson to the Clay Center during October, November, and December. Ohlsson was last at NCC, in 2004, as an assistant to Nina Hole. Ohlsson currently lives and works in Rønne on Bornholm in Denmark. Her education includes studies at the Glass and Ceramic School in Bornholm, Denmark, and The Art School of Norrköping, Sweden.
The Fogelberg Fellowship, now in its 7th year, and the Anonymous Potter Studio Fellowship, in the midst of its 3rd year, are designed to provide emerging ceramic artists, in particularly potters, an opportunity to be in residence for one year at the Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work as well as exchange ideas and knowledge with other ceramic artists.
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.
