THEME: Makers, Mentors and Milestones

The 50th Anniversary Conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts will explore the personal, social and aesthetic forces that animate creative work with elemental materials, methods and ideas in the midst of the information age. Kansas City, Missouri, the geographical epicenter of the continental US, is an urban nexus of fountains, bebop and technological innovation. Its horizon connects farmland with cultural complexity. An amalgam of global traditions and local vision, the region’s legacy of great art institutions, patrons, artists and educators has long held an important role in the development of North American ceramic arts. Makers, Mentors and Milestones will highlight issues of contemporary practice, celebrate the impact of influential figures and movements that have shaped the field, and create opportunity to envision collectively what lies ahead.

Locally Generated Exhibitions:

NCECA reviews proposals and prioritizes promotion of exhibitions that surround its annual conference through its Concurrent Exhibition proposal process. Those organizing exhibitions in the region surrounding the conference independently of NCECA’s review process may still be considered for listings in conference promotions by requesting consideration as a Locally Generated Exhibition.

All Locally Generated Exhibitions listings are subject to review and approval by NCECA’s Onsite Conference Liaison(s). Exhibitions organized and/or hosted by members of NCECA are eligible for free listings in conference promotional materials. Exhibitions not hosted or organized by NCECA members may be subject to a $50 listing fee for inclusion in NCECA’s publications, including print materials, App and NCECA’s web site.  Payment information is listed below.
