About this event:
The National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition is an annual juried ceramic competition for Kindergarten through Grade 12 (K-12) students in the United States. Designed to showcase the best K12 ceramic work made in the country, the exhibition takes place in a different city each year in conjunction with the annual conference of The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). The NCECA conference is the preeminent ceramic event in the US annually, gathering professionals from universities, colleges, museums, art galleries and the ceramic arts world to a host city to view exhibitions, demonstrations, talks and other ceramic events. For that week, the host city is the world capital of ceramics. This exhibition spawned an educational foundation that recognizes excellence with awards, prizes and scholarships described at k12clay.org Our juror this year, Bobby Scroggins, was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri where he began his artistic career at a very young age as a sculptor and painter. He studied sculpture and ceramics at The Kansas City Art Institute then a MFA at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. Commissioned to create The Leon M. Jordan Monument in Kansas City as a student, he served as University and Ford Foundation Fellow, NCECA Director, Chair of the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts, and chair of The University of Kentucky ceramics department..
