The exhibition will be held at the Morean Center for Clay December 8th – January 31st, 2019 in St. Petersburg Florida. The purpose of this exhibition is to nurture and advance the careers of emerging and established ceramic artists while also giving our community the opportunity to discover exciting new art being made in our region.

Eligibility: The exhibition and competition is open to all ceramic artists (age 18 or older). All work must be original, completed within the last two years, and not previously exhibited at the Morean. The Morean’s curatorial staff has the final authority for selection.

To submit, please include:

If submitting a site-specific installation, please include a schematic drawing as one of your images and describe how you would incorporate a specific space into your work. Please indicate the space you are interested in.

Categories and size limitations: There is no size limitation, but the work must be reasonably adaptable to the Morean galleries. All visual arts media are encouraged.

Liability: All reasonable precautions will be taken by the Morean to ensure protection of submitted work upon receipt at the Morean. Work will be insured for the duration of the exhibition while on site at the Morean. No liability will be assumed by Morean Arts Center for damage incurred or loss of work while in transit.
