(Cincinnati, Ohio) – For the 57th Annual NCECA Conference Eisele Gallery presents an invitational ceramics exhibition organized by guest curator Chaz Martinsen. The exhibition will take place at Eisele Gallery from Wednesday, March 15th – Saturday April 1st, 2023. Recalibration is a group show about communities and connections. The show includes seven diverse artists, with unique lifestyles, connected through their educational relationships, passion for ceramics and desire to enhance the clay community. There will be a reception for the artists on Thursday March 16th, 5-9pm. Artists will be present.
Guest Curator Chaz Martinsen has invited Kirk Mayhew, Justin Quaid Grubb, Rickie Barnett & Lynne Hobaica, Corey Jefferson and Stephen Jaskowak, to participate and convene through shared experiences and new artwork.
The currents of time have intertwined the experiences of these artists at various stages of their lives. This show features works that span a range of techniques from traditional to digital processes. This includes low fire effects glazes to mid-range soda/salt surfaces to 3D printed and slip casted forms. The ceramists are influenced by their backgrounds and experiences living in locations from the East and West coasts and the Midwest. The artists have moved throughout the U.S. pursuing their education, teaching at various arts institutions and connecting with artists and communities.
The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts advances creation, teaching and learning through clay in the contemporary world. Ceramic art connects us to physical and cognitive experiences that foster environments of cultural equity, diversity, access, and inclusion. NCECA promotes and improves the ceramic arts through education, community-building, research and creative inspiration, offering programs, events and publications to support the field and communities in which we work. NCECA’s broad interests are shaped by artists, students, individual and corporate patrons, gallery owners, museum curators, and providers of ceramic arts-related products and services. As a dynamic, member-driven organization, NCECA is flexible in its program development, international in its perspective and responsive to the changing needs of its constituency.
