2014 NCECA GALLERY EXPO INFORMATION
NCECA’s Gallery Expo features displays of extraordinary works in clay– functional, decorative and sculptural– all of which are available for purchase by visitors. Open to the public from Tuesday evening to Friday afternoon of conference week, representatives and artists from participating galleries are scheduled to make brief presentations that illuminate the process of creation as well as the joy of collecting and using contemporary ceramic works by leading makers. The galleries involved create a unique opportunity to experience and acquire works that might not otherwise be available in the conference region.
The NCECA Gallery Expo, Projects Space and Special Exhibits will be held in Exhibit Hall A of the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53203. This is the same space as Commercial and Non Profit “Resource Hall.” Access to the Gallery Expo will be free and open to the public and precede entry to the Resource Hall.

Booth Description & Expectations:
Booth dimensions are 10’ x 20’ x 8’, 30’ ceilings, 8’ hard walls, high-quality gallery lighting, signage, and a shared “back stock” area nearby for storing replacement work (not for empty box storage). Again this year is the opportunity to gain further exposure for your gallery through gallery talks and artist talks within the Gallery Expo and in a separate nearby room. In keeping with the goal of the expo, galleries are expected to display artwork in a gallery-style look. Pedestals are strongly encouraged (a small quantity of pedestals will be available for rent from NCECA).
