The Workhouse Arts Center is proud to announce a call for entries for its 2nd Annual Workhouse Clay National Ceramics Exhibition 2012. This 2nd Annual Workhouse Clay National Ceramics Exhibition is an “Open Call†for functional and/or sculptural ceramic artworks. The focus of this year’s exhibit is to highlight the tremendous variety and depth of contemporary functional and sculptural ceramic artworks currently being created throughout the U.S.A.




Juror- Peter Held


Peter Held received his bachelor’s degree in studio art with an emphasis on ceramics from the State University of New York, Brockport.
