call for entry: For Minnesota Ceramic Artists

We are proud to announce a recent two-year grant from the Jerome
Foundation in support of Northern Clay Center’s 2017 and 2018 Jerome
Ceramic Artist Project Grant programs. The Ceramic Artist Project Grant
program, in existence since 1990, supports Minnesota ceramic artists at
relatively early stages in their careers, as they accomplish short-term,
specific objectives. The program will provide three grants of $6,000
each in 2017 – 2018 for projects to take place between April 1 and
December 31, 2017 and 2018.

Projects may include, but are not limited to: experimenting with new
techniques and materials; working or studying with a mentor; purchasing
equipment to facilitate an aesthetic or technical investigation;
providing studio time, studio rental, supplies, and technical support;
collaborations between ceramic artists and artists working in other
media; and pursuing education, exhibition, or travel opportunities.

An exhibition of work produced during the grant period will take
place at Northern Clay Center at the conclusion of the grant.
Additionally, recipients will provide a brief image talk about their
work in conjunction with the exhibition.
