July 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - September 19, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists, NMPCA, is proud to announce the opening of our annual Celebration of Clay Exhibition. This event held July 31 – Sept 19, 2020 at the Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos, New Mexico, fulfills a primary mission of this Statewide organization: to promote excellence and creativity in the clay arts. This self-juried exhibition increases understanding and appreciation of clay arts and artists throughout the state of New Mexico and beyond. It is an excellent opportunity for New Mexico potters to share their best work. Having presented the Celebration of Clay exhibition annually in various locations for more than 15 years, NMPCA is proud to partner with the Fuller Lodge in presenting this show at the Fuller Lodge Gallery. The Fuller Lodge has long been a mecca for artists and art lovers and the host to fascinating exhibitions of local artists. This exhibition title, “Perspectives” allows participants to express their vision in ceramic art in this year 2020. Members from all over the state of New Mexico vary in their situations, coming from different cultures, representing different ages and backgrounds. Some view ceramics as an expression of history, a reflection of the current situation, or visions to the future, seeing design through the perspective of the natural world or the psychology and history of people and cultures. Enjoyment of pure design and beauty infuses the inspiration for many. These multiple visions enable members to create diverse and fascinating ceramic works, whether they are functional, sculptural, ornamental, monumental, or intimate.
