Call for entries: "Across the Divide" at Coconino Center for the Arts in Flagstaff, AZ

Across the Divide will encompass the vast array of contemporary ceramics in the sculptural and installation genres. This exhibit uses the Continental Divide as a metaphor for the artist working in clay that has separated them from traditional techniques and stereotypes within the medium. Artists are encouraged to submit work that pushes traditional boundaries of the ceramic medium in its treatment of material and subject.

This exhibit is open to all artists, national and international. All forms of ceramic sculpture, installation and new media work are eligible. Works should have some ceramic component and can range in scale from hand held to monumental.

Juror Steven Schaeffer is a ceramic sculptor whose work has been shown nationally as well as internationally including the Florence Biennale and the Ceramic Biennial International Competition in Korea. Steve teaches Ceramics at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.

A prize will be awarded for best of show ($500).
