"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."

2011 NCECA Conference

The 45th Annual NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference will be held at the Tampa Convention Center March 30-April 2.
This is THE big national event for Ceramic Educators at all levels. Many potters like to attend these conferences as well because of the caliber of the programs and presenters not to mention the attendees. The Tampa Bay area will be bustling with related activities including many concurrent gallery shows.
Steve and I are fortunate enough to be included in a show called 'Contemporary Traditions of Art Pottery' at The Craftsman House in St. Petersburg, a wonderful bungalow transformed into a gallery and cafe with adjoining ceramic studios. The owners Jeff & Stephanie Schorr(a potter herself) have put an incredible amount of effort in their venture. The result is that their gallery/cafe has received several notable awards and is a vibrant part of the community. If you are in or go to the Tampa Bay Area, don't miss their place. If you are there between March 12- April 10, check this show out.
