SDCCOME EARLY AND STAY LATE: LOTS TO SEE!
In March, at the conference, we have made it easy for you to see over 25 Concurrent Independent Exhibitions curated and originated by NCECA members, in one place, the Seattle Design Center. Seventy-seven-thousand square feet of exhibitions in a beautiful well lit and secure facility. We are grateful for Hines International for making this facility available.

These CIE shows represent the breadth of who we are and how we use clay and will include a national table top invitational, regional wood fired Ikebana vessels, contemporary pots from Japan and China, large sculpture of multiples, life sized portraits, outrageously decorative environments, high tech and low tech work, figurative sculpture, one person shows, alumni showcases, and presentations by established pottery and art centers from Montana, Seattle, Vancouver, and points east. As a start! Additional CIEs have been sited in galleries, department stores, churches, and educational centers. See the website for details. Museums throughout the Northwest, from Bellingham to La Conner to Bellevue to Tacoma have embraced the upcoming conference and in honor of NCECA, special exhibitions have been planned: look on the website in November for details of shows in the Seattle Art Museum, Henry Art Gallery, Bellevue Art Museum, Frye Art Museum, Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, Whatcom Museum, and the Museum of Northwest Art. Overall, we have 175 exhibitions planned. See the website for details and check back often for new postings. Most of all, when planning your travel to Seattle, please COME EARLY AND STAY LATE. There will be lots to see!

Shared Journeys II Reflections

NCECA expresses its deepest gratitude to Shoji Satake, Boomer Moore, Bob Anderson and the exceptional administration and students of West Virginia University, Morgantown. The professionalism, hospitality and helpfulness they shared with the 185+ participants and presenters involved in the Shared Journey's II symposium that took place from October 14-16, 2011 made the experience informative and enriching all. The event drew a wide demographic of participants ranging in age from teens through NCECA Honors and Fellows including Val Cushing, Glen Blakley, Marlene Jack and Jay Lacouture who had the distinct pleasure of introducing the keynote lecture by his daughter, Elizabeth Lacouture, a professor at Colby College in Maine. The geographical range of participants was also apparent. While the greatest number of participants came from the mid-Atlantic Region others came from as far away as California, Montana, Utah, North Carolina, Missouri, Kentucky and Indiana. Anchoring the program were demonstrating artists from China, Professors Lv Pinchang (CAFA), and Li Chao (JCI) along with Master Overglaze Decorator Feng Shangjin, Master Thrower Zhan Shaolin and Master Trimmer Dai Guangyu. Other presenters from the US included Bill Strickland, Val Cushing, John Neely, Dryden Wells, Dan Murphy and Joe Molinaro. Thanks to a National Endowment for the Arts Consortium grant made to Manchester Craftsmen's Guild to develop partnership opportunities with West Virginia University, guest artists from Jingdezhen were able to participate in outreach demonstrations for Pittsburgh high school students in the days prior to the symposium. Highly prominent among NCECA's goals for its programs is to connect with members through shared experiences that are meaningful, genuine and thought provoking. Unsolicited comments from participants like the following indicate that these aspirations were achieved through Shared Journeys II symposium.
