HOT MUD: Emerging Canadian Ceramists

The Burlington Art Centre is now accepting submissions for the exhibition Hot Mud: Emerging Canadian Ceramists, a survey of the most exciting and promising emerging artists working with ceramics in Canada today, selected by senior Canadian artists and curators in five regions across the country. The exhibition will take place in the Lee-Chin Family Gallery at the BAC, from September 7 to November 4, 2013.
Emerging artists are those at an early stage in their careers and have created a modest independent body of work. To be eligible for this exhibition, artists must have completed basic training, are recognized by other artists working in the field, have a history of professional exhibitions and publications, and who have maintained an independent professional practice for a minimum of three years to a maximum of ten years prior to their application. Submissions by individual artists, groups, and collectives will be considered.
