call for artists: exhibition opportunity @ JANE HARTSOOK GALLERY (Greenwich House)

Greenwich House Pottery held exhibitions of ceramics almost since the day it was established in 1905, though it was not until 1970 that Jane Hartsook (Director, Greenwich House Pottery 1945-1982) created a permanent exhibition space on the second floor of The Pottery. Upon her retirement in 1982, the gallery was renamed the Jane Hartsook Gallery in her honor.
The Jane Hartsook Gallery echoes the Pottery’s commitment to supporting emerging and established ceramic artists who have demonstrated an innovative level of excellence within the medium. The Gallery also promotes an educational mission to share historical and contemporary works in clay with a diverse community. The Gallery accepts proposals from artists or curators where clay/ceramics is the primary medium. We aim to represent the wide-ranging capabilities of clay as a material and are interested in work that approaches the medium from art, craft, and design perspectives.

The next deadline for proposals is September 1, 2018. Instructions for submitting a proposal can be found here.
