Early Career Fellowship for BIPOC Ceramic Artists

We are pleased to announce our inaugural Early Career Fellowship for BIPOC Ceramic Artists. The Fellowship has been established to support artists of color who are embarking on a career in functional ceramics.

We are a dedicated group of professional potters in Western Massachusetts. Every year since 2004 we have opened our studios to customers for the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail, held on the last weekend of April. The Trail has continually grown in attendance and sales and has a forward momentum that we feel excited to share with the recipients of the Fellowship. We invite you to apply and experience the thriving pottery community and creative economy in Western MA.

Our customers and collectors travel from near and far to shop, learn, and explore the region. We mail our event brochure to over 10,000 homes and reach thousands through our email and social media campaigns. We feel confident about offering an excellent opportunity to an early career artist through this fellowship.

Recipients will join the 2023 Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail on April 28th-30th 2023 as guest potters at one of our host studios.…

Oxford Ceramics Fair

Oxford Ceramics Fair is – probably – the UK’s longest running ceramics event, established at least 26 years ago! It is selected and run by and for the makers, and our aim is to provide an unpretentious and affordable platform that nonetheless showcases only the finest makers working in clay today. No commission is taken on sales, and this is a chance to buy directly from the maker and support the sector.

Matthew O’Reilly artist talk @ Craft Alberta

Join the Alberta Craft Council for a virtual Artist Talk and Closing Reception of Procession of the Self on Monday October 17, at 7pm MDT,
Procession of the Self is an Alberta Craft Council solo exhibition by 2022 Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics winner Matthew O’Reilly. The figural ceramic works in Matthew’s show were developed during his year-long residency at Medalta in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Through the iterative making and exhibiting process, Matthew’s work has evolved from gallery white, distorted public statuary to richly expressive, towering figures. Using the sculpted figure as a launch pad for conversation about the human condition and making reflexive work that pushes, pulls, and complicates dialogues around identity, Matthew’s work conveys a personal narrative while simultaneously being a larger cultural time capsule.
