2019 Emerging Artist Nick Lenker, Sarah Heitmeyer, Sean Scott, George Rodriguez, Lindsay Montgomery, Qwist Joseph

NCECA believes that those creating work offering new/exciting/thoughtful perspectives on the ceramic medium, expanding upon genres of creative production and inquiry are qualified as candidates for its Emerging Artist awards.  An Emerging Artist may be at the early stages of receiving recognition for his/her work but is currently underrepresented through exhibitions or publications that might otherwise bring the work to wide attention. The intent of the award is to recognize, cultivate and amplify vital, new voices of creative endeavor in ceramics. The award enables these artists to reach broader national and international audiences and impact discourse in the field.

NCECA’s Emerging Artists program seeks to identify under-recognized artists doing extraordinary work in ceramic art and highlight them to an international audience during NCECA’s Annual Conference. Curator Sequoia Miller and artist Kevin Snipes will join NCECA Director-at-Large Julia Galloway as the panel to select Emerging Artists through a review of statements, images, and support documents submitted for consideration.

Deadline will sneak up quickly, review application today and apply.
