Viewers can expect to see wildly organic compositions juxtaposed with tightly controlled geometry, elegant simplicity alongside rugged textural layers, and utility underscored by design in this MN NICE graduation exhibition. Participating artists include: Matthew Cawley, Carol Elizabeth Hanson, Audrey Jellison, Becky David, Erin Parker, Marjorie Pitz, Kathryn Schroeder, and Heather Tietz.


Now entering its fourth year, MN NICE is an advanced certificate program that provides rigorous, personalized instruction for artists who are serious about taking the next step in their ceramic education. The program is designed to respond to the changing needs of emerging makers and give non-traditional students high-level training in ceramic materials, history and theory, and professional practice. Through instruction and individual mentorship, artists build the skills, knowledge, and insight necessary to create a personal and cohesive body of work.
