Every year at the NCECA conference, Studio Potter awards six students from around the country with a one-year membership. Two graduate students, two post-baccalaureate students, and two K-12 students were selected for their artistic accomplishments by SP board members Jonathan Kaplan, Nancy Magnusson, Jon McMillan, and Hayne Bayless.

Jonathan Kaplan, owner of Plinth Gallery in Denver, Colorado, and Albuquerque based studio potter Nancy Magnusson juried the National K-12 Exhibition held at the Oregon Convention Center. The winners are (below, L to R): twelfth grader Kelly Rubin from Seattle Academy for her “A Trio of Birds,” and twelfth grader Kelly Zierdt from Middlesex High School, New Jersey for her “My Popsicle Melted.”

This year the exceptional work at the National Juried Student Exhibition (Hoffman Gallery, Oregon College of Arts and Crafts) was surveyed by board members Hayne Bayless, potter and owner of Sideways Studio, and Jon McMillan, Assistant Professor of Ceramics at the University of Mary Washington. The winners are (below, clockwise from top left): graduate students Tiffany Tang (University of Montana) and Stuart Gair (University of Nebraska-Lincoln), and post-baccalaureate students Teresa Larrabee (University of North Texas) and Mike Cinelli (University of Mississippi). Along with being awarded a membership, NJSE winners have the option to write an article for the summer/fall 2017 issue of Studio Potter so be sure your membership is current! Congratulations to all our winners, and to all the students included in these exceptional shows!
