Within the walls of Northern Clay Center, there are teaching studios, a library, offices, a kiln room, a glaze bay, a space dedicated to bringing clay to the community through our outreach program, and galleries. One of the largest spaces in the building is occupied by shared, private, and residency studios. Most who visit NCC see evidence of the space, and the talented makers within, every single time they are here. They might be teaching a workshop or class, or rolling a cart to the kiln room. They might be behind a respirator in the glaze mixing room or loading a vehicle for a show out in the world. Perhaps you’ve said hi while warming tea in the breakroom or even volunteered with them.

Until 2020 brought us the pandemic, the public was encouraged to roam through the studios to explore and engage, and while the Studio Artists are usually right in front of us and accessible in other parts of the building, the public closure of the studio space seemed to elevate the desire of visitors to see it.

The rich resource of talent, dedication, and resiliency of the NCC Studio Artists is the focus of this spring’s exhibition in the Galusha Gallery space. This exhibition, designed to bring the work and voices from the studios into a gallery setting, is offered to encourage the recognition of the community of makers who are right here in our everyday NCC world.
