Check out their upcoming exhibits and calls for entry at their web site.
The Call for Entry
This was a juried exhibit for artwork created by high school students aged 15-19, and located within 150 miles of St. Louis.
The Ceramic Art Pieces
The first group of ceramic pieces are sculptures.
These last three pieces were the most intriguing for me. The lantern would make a good looking luminary. The others have unorthodox shapes that likely represent a result of imagination and trial and error during the creation of the actual piece.
Vessels and bowls
Out of the vessels and bowls I like the teapot, because it has a woven surface; the Tree plate is also a nice looking piece.
