Join HCCC Curatorial Fellow Cydney Pickens and exhibiting artists for a virtual tour of Limitless: The 2021 Recipients of ClayHouston’s Award for Texas BIPOC Ceramic Artists. As the exhibition’s curator, Cydney will lead a tour of the works on view, followed by a conversation with featured recipients of ClayHouston’s inaugural Award for Texas BIPOC Ceramic Artists. This award provides funding for ceramic artists in Texas who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color, as part of an ongoing effort to cultivate greater diversity in and access to the field of ceramics.
Tune in at 3:00 PM to learn about each artist’s approach to working in clay as well as the influences behind their works. Viewers are encouraged to submit questions via Facebook Live’s chat feature to be answered live.
