CERAMIC DOINGS @ BALTIMORE CLAYWORKS THIS MONTH

ceramic sutra_lorminaLORMINA SALTER FELLOWSHIP

Realizing the need to enrich the existing collective studio with creative, energetic and artistically diverse ceramists, Baltimore Clayworks is offering a one-year residency fellowship as a memorial to one of our founders, Lormina Salter. "Nina," as she was fondly known to us, was a gifted teacher and respected artist who handbuilt large stoneware vessels and sculpture. Her initiative, energy and insistence on artistic excellence were instrumental in setting direction for Clayworks in its critical early years.

The deadline to apply is April 15. To access the application, click on this link:  http://www.baltimoreclayworks.org/artists/Application-LorminaSalterFellowship.pdf
