Want to play? In conjunction with the 46th Annual Conference of NCECA (The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts), taking place in Seattle March 26 – 31, 2012, Bellevue Arts Museum is pleased to present Push Play: The 2012 NCECA Invitational. Both in life and in art, play is not all fun and games. It is also serious business, teaching essential life skills and developing healthy, well-balanced lives through the pleasure of participation. Not relegated to the world of children, it continues to cultivate enlightenment and enjoyment through informed, creative activity into maturity. Imaginative, engaging and at times challenging, Push Play showcases the work of more than 35 important and emerging ceramic artists from across the globe, exploring how the act of play effortlessly expands human potential while also entertaining us.View works from the show online here.
