Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc. Cost: $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.

It must be a human instinct to create with mud. Ancient civilizations around the globe seemed to reach the same conclusion about this resource at various times in history. If you take earth, wet it, shape it, and fire it, something useful, beautiful, and elemental is formed. From this invention, mud bricks, drinking vessels, and sculptures were created. With “Ceramic Centric”, we seek to celebrate how current artists translate this ancient medium. The artwork in this exhibition will be comprised primarily of clay. As creating with this medium is not limited to the three dimensional, half of the show will display wall hanging ceramic works. Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces of ceramic work. Entries must be submitted by February 18, 2018. “Ceramic Centric” will open with a reception on Friday, April 12, 2019, from 5:30-8 pm in the main gallery. The exhibition will be on display from April 12, 2019 - May 24, 2019.
