2015    international    juried    exhibition

The Silver City CLAY Festival’s International Juried Exhibition, CLAY in the Garden,
requires that each entry demonstrates the artist’s personal
interpretation of “CLAY in the Garden,” whether that be in the form of a
ceramic vessel, tile, sculpture or garden ornament. Entries will be
juried based on creativity and artistic merit.
