Emerging Artist Residency program Northern Clay Center

January 13, 2014


Eligibility is restricted to clay artists who have completed all formal academic training by the start of the grant period (September 1, 2017), who are not currently enrolled full or part-time in a degree-granting institution (including BA, MFA, or a teaching certification program), and who are not employed full-time as a ceramics teacher at the college level.
Please note: a college degree is NOT required to apply for this or any NCC award. We encourage applicants who would like to make clay and creativity a continuing part of their lives, even if they do not or have not pursued it in a post-secondary institutional setting.


The Emerging Artist Residency program encompasses two unique fellowships, designed to provide up to four ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for one year at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work, as well as exchange ideas and knowledge with other ceramic artists.

The Anonymous Artist Studio Fellowship will be awarded to two emerging ceramic artists working in a functional, sculptural, or installation-based manner. The Fogelberg Studio Fellowship will support two emerging ceramic artists working in a functional manner, who are interested in pursuing a career in studio pottery.

Each residency recipient will have a shared, furnished studio space with 24/7 access to NCC’s facilities from September 1, 2017, to August 31, 2018. In addition to the workspace, each fellowship includes a materials and firing stipend, and professional development and enrichment opportunities through NCC’s education, exhibitions, and sales gallery programs, for qualified and interested fellows. A group exhibition featuring work produced during the fellowship period will take place in January 2019,


The deadline to apply for the Emerging Artist Residencies is Friday, April 14, 2017
