    Celebration of Clay 2016 
    Confrontations

    September 1 - 25, 2016

    Vote for People's Choice HERE.

    This show is our opportunity to share exciting new ceramic works created by members.

    The show is being held at the Sixty Six Gallery in Historic Nob Hill, 4009 Central Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM  87108. 

    This theme for this year’s shows is “Confrontations”. Jurying for Best of Show and for the three Merit Awards will be based on craft, creativity and correlation to the theme.

    Confrontation may be interpreted in many ways: as social criticism, as comment on the human condition, or as the tension between opposites: near & far, solid & fluid, fire & ice.

    “Conquer the angry one by not getting angry; conquer the wicked one by goodness; conquer the stingy one by generosity; and the liar by speaking truth.”

    Guatama Buddha

    The theme is discussed further in The Slip Trail online newsletter at www.thesliptrail.com.

    Entries are displayed on our exhibition website, www.celebrationofclay.com where we will again feature our interactive People’s Choice Vote.

    Monika KadenExpressive Figure Sculpture : Movement and Form

    October 20-23, 2016 – 3.5 day workshop

    Register before September 25, 2016

    Join Monika Kaden, for a fun workshop on her techniques for creating expressive figurative sculptures that are filled with movement and whimsy. Learn about her process for adding movement and mass to her clay forms: from hand-built or wheel-thrown ceramics via alteration to a new sculpture.

    Leave everything behind you and create outside of traditional academia. Be inspired and be curious about form and design, proportion and body-expression, glazing and firing. 

    Monika is an internationally known sculpture, installation- and mixed media artist. She was classical trained in former East Germany, later in The Netherlands and USA. She received her MFA from Alfred University, NY. She was an Artist in Residence with the Santa Fe Art Institute, The Clay Studio Philadelphia, the Ceramic Work center ‘Den Bosch, Holland and worked with the Santa Fe Opera.  She found her permanent home in New Mexico.
