Headed to NCECA Philadelphia 2010

I'm leaving tomorrow for Philadelphia, PA and my first NCECA conference (National Council on the Education for Ceramic Arts)! I can hardly imagine 5000 ceramic artists all in the same city! Very exciting!

If you're going to be there, be sure to stop by the following exhibits...

Off the Wheel: A Showcase of Slab-built Pots for the Table and Home.
Chestnut Hill Academy, 500 West Willow Grove Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 215-247-4700

Featuring Benjamin Carter, Sam Chung, Marc Digeros, Allison McGowan, Chris Pickett, Sandi Pierantozzi, Cheyenne Chapman Rudolph, Amy Scher, Liz Zlot Summerfield.
My good friend and professional potter, Cheyenne Chapman Rudolph also curated this exhibit. I'm so proud of her!

Opening Reception - Thursday, April 1, 6-9pm


2010 NCECA Invitational - Earth Matters
The Galleries at Moore College of Art and Design,
20th Street and The Parkway, Philadelphia, PA. 19103

Opening Reception - Thursday April 1, 5-7 pm.

Nan Smith, figurative sculptor and one of my instructors at UF, has a large installation in this exhibit. I went out to her studio a few weeks ago to help her pack this work. It includes over 300 parts!

1,895 Years of Pottery
B Square Gallery -614 South 9th St., Philadelphia, PA 19147

Linda Arbuckle, majolica potter extraordinaire and another of my UF instuctors, is one of
60 potters represented in this show that have at least 25 years of experience working with clay, adding up to over 1,895 years of experience! Not be be missed.

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 1, 6-8pm

Looks like Thursday night is going to be full of gallery hopping, enjoying great artwork, spending time with old friends, and meeting new one! Hope to see you there!

Cheers!
