KCAI Ceramics Students and Alums are Honored

To recap some exciting events of last year I am going to include the last, unpublished post by Laura Blumenberg.

“Quite a few of our students were honored by the ceramics community.  Ariel Bowman (junior), Ryan Fletcher (senior) and Eric Wolever (senior) were selected to participate in the NCECA National Student Juried Exhibition. Eric won the NCECA Undergraduate First Place Award for Student Excellence, and Ariel was awarded the Muddy Elbow Soldner Mixer Award for Student Excellence. Additionally, Harmony Chapman (senior) was awarded the Regina Brown Fellowship through NCECA.

Eric is also featured in the exhibition “10 Years: The Brand Boeshaar Scholarship Program” at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa.

Lora Campbell (junior) has received the Brooks Scholarship Award to fund her residency at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colo.

Eric Wolever will be attending the graduate program at Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz while Keith Simpson will be heading to the graduate program at The Ohio State University in Columbus.

Meanwhile, alum Jo Kamm (2007) won an NCECA graduate fellowship award, which includes a cash prize of $2,000. Jo will travel this summer to Poland where he will work with artist Marek Cecula to set up an artist residency center. He has also been selected as an artist in residence artist for European Ceramic Context 2010, a biennial symposium on the Island of Bornholm, Denmark.  The six week residency will take place this Fall.

Congratulations everyone!”
