Art opening reception: 2013 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Biennial
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) hosts the 2013 NCECA Biennial, the premier exhibition of ceramic arts in the United States. The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) organized the exhibition, which coincides with its 47th Annual Conference in Houston. The wide range of entries and the high degree of visibility of the exhibition within the field make the 2013 NCECA Biennial an unparalleled investigation of contemporary ceramic expression.
Organized by NCECA exhibitions director, Linda Ganstrom, the biennial includes 39 works by 35 artists selected by jurors Cristina Cordova, Richard Notkin and Namita Gupta Wiggers. Rather than a broad survey exhibition, the 2013 NCECA Biennial represents a unique viewpoint of three leading-edge experts in the field of contemporary ceramic art and craft practice.
The opening will also feature two other exhibitions, Constructing Solitude and the ClayHouston Member Show, as well as open studios by HCCC's current resident artists. Beer sponsored by Karbach Brewing Co.
On view through May 5.
