call for entry: C14 -Paris

Call for application

2019 edition

The association is changing direction. Ceramic 14 Paris becomes C14-PARIS. The salon is now led by two ceramic artists (Laurence Crespin and Patrick Loughran) and two curators (Frédéric Bodet and Stéphanie Le Follic-Hadida).

The Salon C14-PARIS is moving more radically towards contemporary art and intends to be a forum for quality in the art market. It aspires to connect ceramic artists, art galleries and collectors. It will offer exceptional visibility to thirty artists, two art schools and one collector.

C14-PARIS is aimed at French, European and international artists who create sculptural, non-functional works (from volume to mix-media.)
• Works must be recent or never exhibited
• Proposed works must be predominantly ceramic, but can be a composite.
• Mostly ceramic installations may contain non-ceramic elements (drawings, photographs, paintings, etc.).

The 2019 edition will be held from Thursday 3 to Sunday 6 October in the heritage annex of the town hall in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, rue Pierre Castagnou.

Two prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the show:
– 1st Prize: The Jury Prize will allow the laureate to present their work as part of a personal exhibition in a municipal gallery (public communications + newsletter) + Ceradel patronage (500 €) and Baillet (clay).
– 2nd Prize: the “residence” prize, designed to encourage an approach, will allow the laureate to stay 2 to 3 months in an associated ceramics-equipped residence in France or in Europe.

Applications must be completed online at (or can be returned by mail to the association’s head office) before February 28, 2019.
All entries are subject to the acceptance of the general regulations.
The candidate will be notified of the jury’s decision no later than March 31, 2019.

deadline this week: Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery Annual Cup Show.

Eleventh Annual Cup Show: “Form and Function”
Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery is hosting its annual juried exhibition that explores the idea of the
drinking vessel. The focus of the exhibit is on the function and concept of the drinking vessel, including its relation
to history, politics, craft, technology, utility, and narrative. It is a survey of the wide variety of approaches to
contemporary ceramics through the lens of the most intimate and accessible vessel – the cup.

Adam Field Born and raised in Colorado, Adam earned his BA in art from Fort Lewis College. For two years, he
immersed himself in the culturally rich art scene of the San Francisco Bay Area, where he began his full time studio
practice. From there, he relocated to Maui, where he established a thriving studio business. He spent most of 2008
in Icheon, South Korea, studying traditional Korean pottery making techniques under 6th generation Onggi master
Kim Ill Maan. In 2013 he created and premiered HIDE-N-SEEKAH at the NCECA conference in Houston, TX.

After maintaining his studio in Durango, CO for 5 years, Adam moved to Helena, MT in 2013 where he was a long-
term resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts. Adam is now a full-time studio potter in Helena, MT.

His Works are included in private collections and kitchen cabinets internationally.
