McKnight Summer Open House

July 15, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

McKnight Summer Open House
Reception for Seven McKnight Artists
Saturday, July 15, 1 – 4 pm, FREE

We invite everyone to launch Northern Clay Center’s annual exhibition Seven McKnight Artists with a free summer event. View the works of talented, established artists from Minnesota and around the world. Artists in the exhibition are Claudia Alvarez (New York, NY), Eliza Au (Lake Dallas, TX), Edith Garcia (2020 Recipient, Half Moon Bay, CA), Lynne Hobaica (Bakersville, NC), Tony Kukich (St. Paul, MN), Janina Myronova (Wrocław, Poland), and Ginny Sims (Minneapolis, MN). This exhibition, supported by the McKnight Foundation, showcases the success of each artist’s fellowship or residency. 

Join our community of clay lovers for an open house and pottery sale. Partake in food, free hands-on clay activities, a Studio Artist Sale, and our second annual Collectors’ Sale. Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate the exhibition artists, the NCC community, NCC Studio Artists, and the amazing urban Seward Neighborhood that is our home!

Collectors! Are you interested in downsizing your ceramic collection to make room for more artwork? Would rather sell the work than donate it to our ReCollect program? The Collectors’ Sale is for you! NCC will set up your space outdoors and manage all sales. The commission rate is 70% to each collector, and 30% to NCC. The collector is responsible for setting the sale price of each work. We can accept up to five collectors at this year’s open house, and the first names are already coming in. Please contact  tippymaurant@northernclaycenter.org if you would like to commit to the event. It promises to be a compelling sale!
