This year, Northern Clay Center marks its 30th Anniversary with a group exhibition featuring the work of artists who have been at the core of a vibrant exhibition program over the years. It would be folly to think it possible to embody the full range of the contributions of the many talented, thrilling, controversial, and wise voices of 30 years of exhibiting artists, let alone offer an exhaustive exploration, in one exhibition. Rather, it’s intended as an elegant sampling of relationships and the possibilities of clay as a medium.

Emily Galusha Gallery

How It’s Going offers space for past Emerging Artist Grant Recipients and MN NICE alumni to share where their lives as artists have taken them since their time at NCC. Artifacts of careers in fashion, videography, engineering, architecture, and of course, ceramics help create an intriguing visual dialog.
