For all those thinking about attending NCECA, here is the website
http://www.nceca.net

The conference hotel is very reasonable compared to other cities. Good idea to book early. I think someone said there is a championship playoff that week.

Is this an event open to all potters or only for educators? I live near Milwaukee

Open to anyone... collectors, curators, and academic art historuians also attend every year.  International too.

 

Some people even just go for a single day, and spend much of it in the trade show hall with the vendors and the non-profit exhibitors (shamless plug here... stop by the New Hampshire Institute of Art booth and say "hi").

 

Go... you will be amazed.  Something for everyone.  Actually... always too much for everyone; you can't begin to see it all.

 

Biggest downside... it is not inexpensive by the time you add in the hotel and the food and the transportation.  If you are close.... that helps a lot.

 

best,

Another bonus to locals is that there will be lots and lots of pottery shows going on for the whole month. At galleries, universities and museums. Most are free or have minimal entry fees. A feast of pottery of all kinds ... You get to see all the famous work you've only seen in magazines.

That would be Providence, RI 2015.2016 is the 50th Anniversary and will be in Kansas City.

 

Rebbilicious, you would love it. It is non-stop clay info PLUS so many exhibitions you can't see them all.

Still hoping to attend 2015 in Rhode Island, and perhaps helping with a k-12 teacher panel......

EARLY BIRD RATES end on January 31st ... so if you are thinking of attending, take advantage of the savings!

 

I really encourage everyone to consider attending NCECA at some time ... when it is close by, definitely attend.

While it is somewhat overwhelming to think of attending for the first time, it is definitely worth it.

Think of being in a place with thousands of other potters surrounded by fabulous exhibits of pottery ... people talking pottery all day long ... nobody wondering why you do it ... nobody questioning your priorities ... miles of pottery to ogle, not to mention all the suppliers in one place waiting to talk to you about their wares .... all the workshop schools waiting to tell you about their schedules ... universities promoting their classes ... famous potters work all over the place for you to buy or just drool over. Free demos ... you can watch potters working on live installations ... all day long there are demos and films to watch ... there are talks and panel discussions ...

 

 24/7 POTTERY

 

If you see me there, please say HI ... I would love to meet you in person.

Keep checking into the website where they post the schedules and bus routes and such at various times. There will also be an APP for the conference.

I have been studying the schedule, how do you pick!?  So many lectures I want to go to! 

 

So any chance we could do a "forum lunch" (or dinner) get together for any active members here?

That would be fun. Want to come to the Texas Clay party usually on Thursday? May be going to the Minnesota Women/'s exhibition reception with my friend who is in the show. So little time as always at NCECA.
I am arriving on Tues. and staying til Sunday. Since I have been attending NCECA since 1971, I have many friends I need to see, but I like meeting with new ones too.

Isn't the texas clay party for texas potters? (or am I taking the title too literally?) 

 

The only potters I know in real life are people through here, none of which I have met face to face.

 

 It's exciting that a convention like this is happening (only 35-40 minutes from my home) when I am learning everything.

You can pay $5 to come and eat some snacks. Hang out with potters. Friendly usually. Also they project images of the previous texas Six Pack show. Doesn't last long (it did in Houston). I bring my friend from Brussels. He has some Texas connections.

You can catch the excitement level in Chris's post above.  She captures NCECA well.  Attending is WELL worth the investment......... because it is an investment in your clay future whether you are a student, professional, or hobbiest. 

 

There will be a Potters Council member's reception this year also.  Keep you eyes peeled for official info soon.  I and a lot of the other Board members will be there.  Plus you'll find us from time to time at the Potters Council booth (where the member's exhibition will be located).

 

And additionally I'll be staffing New Hampshire Institute of Arts's table in the non-profit area of the trade show hall from time to time also.

 

Please say "hi". 

 

best,

OK Marcia ... I want to go to the Texas party with you and R ! The texans do have FUN.

Two more Do Not Miss items for new attendees ... The K-12 Show of young students work is always wonderful. You get to see the level of talent and educators in the El-Hi years. Also, bring one of your mugs or cups for the Regina Brown mug sale and drop by when you can to see hundreds of great vessels that go on sale Friday morning.

Also ... Thrilled to hear the Potters Council will have a reception too .... AND .... Speaking of the PC booth on the vendors floor and the PC juried Show ....

As the judge of this year's show, I am telling you now ... the work is spectacular! The depth of talent in the Potters Council Membership is awesome. Please make it a point to stop by and see this amazing show. If you like surface texture and eye appeal ... you will be a very happy camper.

My biggest challenge is choosing the Bus Tour ... No one route has everything I want to see and when you talk to others the next day it always sounds like they picked the best one!

Potters Council is having a reception? How did I miss that. There is too much to see so you need to go over the program and make a list. Check show you need to see because you can't get t them all. There are 3-4 talks or panels at a time. Plus the vendors hall for tools, books, wax, etc. and the non-profits. Saturday's
Emerging Artists talks are always interesting...even if they do follow with an early morning following the Friday night dance.
NCECA really is so little time, so much to do.
Also schools and foundations have reunions. Great time to see old friends and make new ones. My first NCECA was 1972 or 73 in Madison. So it is back to Wisconsin!
