33 free ceramics shows in Seattle

From arts writer Michael Upchurch:

We’ve mentioned the 2012 conference of NCECA (National Conference on Education for the Ceramic Arts) several times in the past month. But the big moment is now here and a veritable museum of ceramic arts has landed all over the Seattle area.

The big events are at the Washington State Convention Center, where three free shows are open to the public, and at Seattle Design Center in Georgetown, where 30 substantial shows, also free, are on display. “Marks: Sculptors Drawing,” at the Convention Center, features knockout work by Charles Krafft, Akio Takamori, Patti Warishina and others. It’s kept good company by “Kolva/Sullivan: Selected Works,” a survey of artwork from Spokane’s Kolva/Sullivan Gallery, and “Enduring Clay: Four Decades of Collecting Ceramics by the city of Seattle and King County.”

The Convention Center shows, all on Level Two, are open 6:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. Monday-Friday through April 9. Seattle Design Center’s shows are open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through March 31, 5701 Sixth Ave. S., Seattle. Go here for more information, including details on all the museums and galleries around town that have NCECA-inspired exhibits.
