We are currently installing the first ever juried Clay Artists at the Duluth Art Institute exhibition. This exhibition was inspired by the resiliency, tenacity, creativity, and skill of the 37 ceramic artists who rent studio space and make work at the Duluth Art Institute Lincoln Park Building.
On January 20, we will celebrate these artists by presenting three juror’s choice awards. Ceramicist Linda Christianson juried a collection of pottery and ceramics that includes functional, sculptural, and abstract pieces. Art on view will include wheel thrown vessels, hand-built sculptures, and decorative ceramics with painted and glazed surfaces fired in electric, gas, and woodfired kilns. We have invited Christianson to announce the three juror’s choice awards during this upcoming virtual event.
In addition to the ceramic exhibition awards, this virtual event will serve as the Annual Member Meeting (which typically coincides with the Annual Member Show). The annual member meeting is an opportunity for members to cast their vote to approve new board members and officers who will serve the DAI. This is a unique aspect of your membership at the DAI, as members have a direct influence on the leadership roles in the organization.
Attending DAI members will be sent a Google Form during the event to cast their votes to vote for the nominated board of directors members and officers.
This is an event for both members and non-members.
