Celebration of Clay
November: The annual Celebration of Clay will be held in Albuquerque. We will be calling for small works for this show. Plan to make something wonderful for the show that would fit inside a 1 foot cube: No dimension of the piece should be longer than 12 inches. This is the first time we have called for specific dimensions of works for the show, so it should be fun to see what everyone does. There will be an opportunity to submit one main piece and one reserve piece. As always, be your own juror to make and enter your best work for this show...the NMPCA does not jury the entries, but we do have special awards in recognition of the most outstanding work. Look for details on this website.
