Upcoming Invitational Exhibitions

I have the pleasure to participate in three invitational ceramics exhibitions during the first part of 2012 that are in conjunction with NCECA's annual conference, being held in the city of Seattle, WA. This conference (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) is the largest gathering of Ceramics educators, artists, craftspeople, collectors and enthusiasts in the USA, and possibly the world. It will take place from March 28 to March 31.

KOBO Gallery, in Seattle, is hosting a sake vessel exhibition, curated by John Dix of Japan.
Entitled, "Ocean in a Cup: Contemporary Sake Vessels from Japan and America", it will feature the works of approximately 10 American and 10 Japanese artists.  The exhibition dates are March 29 - April 21, 2012, with an opening reception on Thursday, March 29, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. KOBO gallery is located at 602-608 S. Jackson St. Here is one of six pieces I will have in this exhibition...
