call for entry: UNWEDGED

UnWedged is Pottery Northwest’s annual national juried exhibition. Each year, the juror seeks out applicants working in clay, with either a connection to tradition or increasing innovation in the field.

Pottery Northwest hopes to produce an exhibition that reflects an excellent example of the state of contemporary ceramics. To this end, each year they select a juror with a proven career track record, who has exemplary taste, and whose work we admire. We are pleased to announce that Julia Galloway is the juror for 2018.
