Each resident artist will receive a $5,000 award and will be provided studio space at no cost, and a glaze and firing allowance. At the beginning of each residency, each artist will present a slide lecture, for which he or she will receive a $300 honorarium. Residents' work will also be included in a catalogue and group exhibition featuring other McKnight-funded artists. Recipients are required to submit a final report at the end of the grant period.
The Center will accept applications from individual non-Minnesota artists for three-month residencies at Northern Clay Center. Four residency grants will be awarded annually. Minnesota artists are not eligible for residency awards.
Northern Clay Center's mission is the advancement of the ceramic arts. Ongoing programs include exhibitions by contemporary regional, national and international ceramic artists, as well as historical and architectural ceramics; classes and workshops for children and adults at all skill levels; studio space and grants for artists; and a sales gallery representing many top ceramic artists from the region and elsewhere.
The McKnight Artist Residencies for Ceramic Artists Program is designed to provide national and international, mid-career individual ceramic artists an opportunity to be in residence for three months at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work and, at the same time, exchange ideas and knowledge with Minnesota ceramic artists. This program intends to recognize and support ceramic artists whose work demonstrates exceptional artistic merit, who have already proven their abilities, and are at a career stage that is beyond emerging.
