Mission Statement: Founded in 1953, the Western Colorado Center for the Arts is a community arts organization dedicated to improving quality of life by promoting the enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts and related arts through studio art instruction, educational programs for children and adults, exhibitions, and the acquisition, care, and display of a permanent art collection. 1803 N. 7th Street Grand Junction, Colorado.
The Western Colorado Center for the Arts offers this international, juried biennial in the spring of every even year. Contemporary Clay aims to showcase the latest developments in ceramic art. The exhibition is open to sculptural and functional work and instal- lation art. We also welcome collaborative projects (between two or more artists) and mixed media work that uses clay as its primary material. The WCCA is a hub for ceramics on the Western Slope, and we revel in the opportunity to see how ceramicists in other parts of the world engage with the field. At its core, Contemporary Clay is an exchange of ideas, and we invite artists everywhere to participate.
Juror: Doug Casebeer is Associate Director, Artistic Director of Ceramics, and Chair of the Artists in-Residence Program at Anderson Ranch Art Center.
