Don't miss out! The NCECA Biennial is a premier international juried ceramic art exhibition and an amazing opportunity. NCECA produces this prestigious exhibition only during odd-numbered years. The exhibition is distinguished for its rigorous selection process, consistently high production values and staging in professional venues. Reviews in prominent journals, robust visitor numbers and the highly informed, international audience drawn to the exhibition through its concurrent run with NCECA's annual conference make inclusion of your work in the Biennial an outstanding opportunity to build your resume and gain valuable exposure as an artist.
The exhibition will be juried from digital images by Cristina Cordova, Richard Notkin and Namita Gupta Wiggers, distinguished creative professionals noted for their contemporary work in ceramics and curatorial practice. Merit and purchase awards total approximately $7,000. NCECA produces a color catalog featuring jurors' statements and work by all participating artists.
