After a 5 year hiatus, this national exhibition is once again putting out a call to artists. This is the 4th go round for the “Visions in Clay” project and what started out envisioned as a small exhibition of regional works, quickly turned into a major national showing of emerging new talent. As I flipped through the 2005 show catalog, I was amazed how the list of selected artists read like a “Who’s Who” of North American ceramics art and art education.

The big change this year is the use of the Smarter Entries system for registration.
It’s fairly strait forward… images must be formatted as a JPG at 72dpi, with a max side length of 1,280 pixels. File size cannot exceed 2 MB.
The big plus is that the artists can load up 0 to 3 submissions when they register for the exhibition and come back later to add entries or switch out any of their submissions before the June 1st deadline.

The other big change is that this years’ show catalog will be put online with links out to the artists.

Entry Fee: $25 for 3 images during the early bird special running until March 1st, $30 for 3 images thereafter. Additional images of work and/or detail images may be purchased for $3 per image, limited to 3 additional work entries.
