deadline this week: Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery Annual Cup Show.

Eleventh Annual Cup Show: “Form and Function”
Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery is hosting its annual juried exhibition that explores the idea of the
drinking vessel. The focus of the exhibit is on the function and concept of the drinking vessel, including its relation
to history, politics, craft, technology, utility, and narrative. It is a survey of the wide variety of approaches to
contemporary ceramics through the lens of the most intimate and accessible vessel – the cup.

Adam Field Born and raised in Colorado, Adam earned his BA in art from Fort Lewis College. For two years, he
immersed himself in the culturally rich art scene of the San Francisco Bay Area, where he began his full time studio
practice. From there, he relocated to Maui, where he established a thriving studio business. He spent most of 2008
in Icheon, South Korea, studying traditional Korean pottery making techniques under 6th generation Onggi master
Kim Ill Maan. In 2013 he created and premiered HIDE-N-SEEKAH at the NCECA conference in Houston, TX.

After maintaining his studio in Durango, CO for 5 years, Adam moved to Helena, MT in 2013 where he was a long-
term resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts. Adam is now a full-time studio potter in Helena, MT.

His Works are included in private collections and kitchen cabinets internationally.
$100 Best of Show prize will be awarded by the juror.

residency opportunity @ the North Carolina Pottery Center

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Full details here.

The North Carolina Pottery Center is currently accepting applications for residency positions of varying lengths, typically of three to six months duration. The duration may depend on what the artist wishes to accomplish, amount of available studio space at the center at any given time, and other factors. Candidates with BFA’s, MFA’s, or equivalent life experience, are invited to apply.

A recent grant from the Windgate Charitable Foundation has enabled the Pottery Center to reinstitute its Artist-in-Residence program.

Resident Artists

Resident artists will be selected from a pool of applicants from across the country and abroad. Residents will be chosen based on their goals (as expressed in their proposals), their previous and current work, and ensuring a diverse synergy that benefits both the resident artists (personally as well as professionally) and enhances the center’s educational programs and programming.

Residents will be provided with a stipend (generally $500 per month), free housing (if they choose to use it) and electricity, studio space, and up to 250 pounds of clay each month in exchange for assistance with studio upkeep, event support, workshops, and occasional teaching responsibilities.

Who can apply?

Candidates with BFA’s, MFA’s, or equivalent life experience, are invited to apply.

Visiting Artists

Professional visiting artists may also be invited to spend time at the center during residency periods to showcase their special skills and provide thoughtful insight and encourage residents to find ways to expand their own skillsets.

The NC Pottery Center serves the wider community of North Carolina potters and pottery enthusiasts and promotes public awareness and appreciation of the history, heritage, and ever-changing tradition of pottery making in North Carolina through educational programs, public services, collection and preservation, and research and documentation.
