Ceramic Wall Works 2020


Think outside of the box! Most ceramic art is for the table top or pedestals, but we want to see what you can do with artworks that hang on the wall. Show us what you can do with ceramics that painters can’t do with paintings. This time around, the walls are reserved for clay, so take advantage of this opportunity to have a little fun with the medium. Experiment with texture, color, and the bounds between two and three-dimensionality. This show will be on display in the Westpark Gallery.
