Deadline: July 20, 2016 – Art In Clay IV: UP AGAINST THE WALL

UP AGAINST THE WALL invites you to forget the pedestal! Let’s put our clay on the map, on the vertical axis, just perfect for a Brooklyn where horizontal space is at such a premium. In New York City, we have to Build UP! Big or small, fat or flat, however it’s hanging. Confrontational clay at it’s most insistent.
