3rd Annual “Off Center”
An International Ceramic Art Competition
Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BC, people have been fascinated with clay. Northern California has a rich history of talented ceramic artists from Robert Arneson to Peter Voulkos. Blue Line Arts is excited to showcase the innovation of ceramic techniques and vision from around the world during this annual show. Ceramic artists who want to share their vision of ceramic art are encouraged to apply.
The Capital Clay Invitational is a group exhibit of Northern California artists exploring both the sculptural and functional elements of clay. This year’s exhibit is dedicated to the memories of Eric Dahlin, George Esquibel and Glenn Takai stalwarts of the Sacramento Clay Community.
