HOT MUD: Call for entry

OK, It's official, the Burlington Art Centre is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its contemporary ceramic collection with a special exhibition.  Along with some very good company that reaches across the country, I have been asked to be a juror.  Do see the call below and share the good news!

One of my favourite aspects about the Burlington is the multiplicity of display spaces in the venue.  Everything from exhibition halls, to floor to ceiling display cases in the corridors to a courtyard space, as seen above.

HOT MUD Emerging Canadian Ceramists

The Burlington Art Centre is now accepting submissions for the exhibition Hot Mud: Emerging Canadian Ceramists. The exhibition will take place in the Lee-Chin Family Gallery at the BAC, from September 7 to November 4, 2013.

Exhibition Focus
A survey of the most exciting and promising emerging artists working with ceramics in Canada today, selected by senior Canadian artists and curators in five regions across the country.

Emerging artists are those at an early stage in their careers and have created a modest independent body of work. To be eligible for this exhibition, artists must have completed basic training, are recognized by other artists working in the field, have a history of professional exhibitions and publications, and who have maintained an independent professional practice for a minimum of three years to a maximum of ten years prior to their application. Submissions by individual artists, groups, and collectives will be considered.
