54th Annual Conference
About the Event
Shockoe Artspace is pleased to be a part of the internationally recognized NCECA Conference as Richmond plays host to this prestigious event. Both Shockoe Artspace and Shockoe Artspace Studios will be showcasing some of the world’s top ceramicists for limited run exhibitions.
A region steeped in history and engaged with reinvention, the arts, teaching and learning are at the heart of Richmond, Virginia’s vision for innovation. The primary material of ceramic art, clay, connects our human experience from our local communities to distant places, and times long past. Clay’s receptivity to human touch carries the hands of distant and past makers into the here and now. Ceramic art’s diversity of expression and continuous invention generate affinities that extend the human imagination. NCECA’s 54th annual conference will explore ways that ceramic artists are charting new pathways from the complex meanings of our interwoven histories.
