For Minnesota Ceramic ArtistsWe 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.
