Arrowmont Artist in Residence Retrospective – Queen City Clay

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Artists-in-Residence program at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, we have partnered with Queen City Clay of Cincinnati, Ohio to put on an exhibition during NCECA to showcase a selection of past ceramic AIRs.

The Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program provides early career, self-directed artists time, space and support to develop new work and be an active part of the Arrowmont community. Each year, five artists are selected to participate in the 11-month program, which begins in mid-June and continues through late May of the following year. Started in 1991, the Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence program is celebrating 30 years in 2021.

Participating artists include:

Magda Gluszek
Richard James
Xia Zhang
Paige Ward
Luke Huling
Austin Riddle
Lindsay Oesterritter
