Statement of Purpose: California Now offers the opportunity to show the most contemporary and innovative California clay, glass & enamel art that is being created today in these three important and related craft media. The exhibition will include functional and non-functional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional works that illustrate the wide scope of artwork. Work is chosen for its melding of technical excellence and content, and for daring to push boundaries. Students with a California address are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be a California resident.
