MUM Department of Art student Kurtis Kujawski has been invited to exhibit during the 2016 National Council On Education For The Ceramic Arts NCECA conference. Kurtis is one of 6 undergraduate and graduate students from a field of over 200 entrants nationwide whose work was selected on the basis of artistic excellence in ceramics to exhibit at the NCECA National Student Juried Exhibition, which opens on March 4th at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in conjunction with the conference.
Art Department professor Jim Shrosbree describes Kurtis’ inclusion in the highly prestigious NCECA National Student Juried Exhibition as “an honor the MUM Art Department is proud of.”
NCECA boasts more than 4,000 members and serves the full spectrum of potters, sculptors, educators, students, businesses and non-profit organizations engaged in the ceramic arts. This year’s conference, to be held March 16-19th in Kansas City, Missouri marks the 50th anniversary of this annual event. With close to 6,000 artists attending, it is the world’s largest event held in the field of ceramic arts. The student ceramics exhibition at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center will remain open to the public through April 30th.
