During the last weekend of March, I had the privilege of attending the 2012 NCECA conference in Seattle, WA. Not only did I attend the conference as a member, but also as an exhibitor in the National Student Juried Exhibition on the University of Washington campus. "All the Better to Love You With," was displayed front and center at the entrance of the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, where it received the Retired Professor's Award from artist, Mark Burns.
This was my first time attending NCECA and I was overjoyed with all the incredible contemporary ceramic work displayed throughout the beautiful city of Seattle. I look forward to future conferences and any opportunity to return back to the west coast.
