NCECA Multicultural Fellowship Exhibition 2023

The DAAP Galleries are proud to present the 2023 Multicultural Fellowship Exhibition in conjunction with The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. The exhibition will run concurrently with Current, the 57th annual conference for NCECA in Cincinnati, Ohio, March 15–18, 2023. This exhibition was curated from a call for participants whose cultural identities have been historically underrepresented in NCECA and the field at large.  The fellowship supports the travel and other expenses to participate in the NCECA conference. The exhibition is curated by Kelly and Kyle Phelps.

NCECA is a dynamic, non-profit organization that engages and sustains a community for ceramic art, teaching, and learning. In addition to deepening knowledge within the field, NCECA expands it by working to cultivate the next generation of ceramic artists and enthusiasts through programing that hopes to engage the wider community. Comprised of approximately 4,000 members from the United States and more than 20 foreign countries, NCECA reaches thousands more each year.

Featured Artists: Silvia Alvarez-Ritterling , Joo Young (Grace) Han, Minah Kim, Aida Lugo, Chris Malone, Pedro Ramirez, Vanna Ramirez , Adilene Rosales, Angelique Scott, Kopal Seth, Antra Sinha, Micah Sweezie, Kushala Vora, Cam Waller, Carletta Williams, Jordan Winiski
