Past, Present, and Future of Art and Learning with Clay: Richmond, Virginia to Serve as Host for the 54th Annual Conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA – (October 26, 2018) – Richmond, Virginia and the surrounding region was recently selected as site of the 54th Annual Conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. The conference will take place March 25-28, 2020 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, 403 N 3rd St, Richmond, VA 23219.
Ceramic art today is ignited through re-investigations of rich histories, ideas about new and old technologies, and ideals for how common clay can transform creative expression, teaching and learning. Steeped in history and engaged with reinvention through the arts, the Richmond, Virginia region will host exhibitions, experiences, and programs that will be publicly accessible. Clay’s receptivity to human touch transports the imaginations of distant and past makers into the here and now. More than 6,000 artists, students, and teachers from throughout the US and abroad will take part in the project, exploring best practices in ceramic art through education, exhibition, and professional networking. The project will engage regional, national, and international artists to produce exhibitions and learning experiences throughout Greater Richmond.
