The McKnight Artist Residency for Ceramic Artists program, in its 21st year at NCC, intends to recognize and support ceramic artists whose work demonstrates exceptional artistic merit, who have already proven their abilities, and are at a career stage that is beyond emerging. The program is intended to provide these ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for three months at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work and, at the same time, exchange ideas and knowledge with Minnesota ceramic artists. Up to three, 3-month residencies will be awarded in 2018, to take place during the 2019 calendar year, through a competitive application process. NCC will invite one or two other artists through a nominative process. Applications are due by 5pm on May 25. For more information and to submit an application, please visit our website. This program is made possible by the generous support of The McKnight Foundation, Minneapolis, MN.
