Red Lodge Clay Center’s biennial Juried National VI extends our mission by showcasing current relevant and diverse practices in the field of ceramics. This exhibition provides a spotlight on the breadth of work currently being made that utilizes clay as a featured material. It is our hope that the Juried National will bridge emergent and established makers, and will include some of the best utilitarian, sculptural, traditional and/or experimental work being created today.

Juror: Lorna Meaden
Lorna Meaden is currently a studio artist in Colorado, and she has been awarded residencies at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and the Archie Bray Foundation.  She received her MFA from Ohio University and her BA from Fort Lewis College.
