NCECA show

NCECA stands for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, a non-profit organization offering resources and support for ceramics artists worldwide. Currently NCECA has over 4000 members, made up of potters, sculptors, educators and students. Besides offering services such as teaching tools, a community clay directory, access to scholarships and awards, a database of calls for entry and ceramic events, NCECA is likely best known for its annual conference that is held each year in the spring somewheres in the United States. 


This year the conference is in Phoenix, Arizona, close enough for USU graduate students to be eligible to apply for the 2009 NCECA Regional Student Juried Exhibition. Robin was encouraged by Trevor, another graduate student to apply for the exhibition, and surprise - his work was accepted! Of nearly 300 works submitted for consideration by 165 different artists, Robin's piece was one of 53 chosen. His large jar will be shown in the graduate category with 2 other USU graduate students.
