CERAMICS RESIDENCY OPPORTUNITY @ SSW


Ceramics Graduate in Residence

Scottish Sculpture Workshop is offering an opportunity to join our ceramics studio with a residency work-exchange programme for an experienced BA/MA graduate in ceramics. The residency is two months in duration during Spring/Summer 2015 (preferred dates May/June, but may be flexible).

The residency offers a ceramic artist the opportunity to develop their portfolio of work with critical and curatorial support, as well as the experience of running studio facilities, outreach workshop days and assisting in the development of the ceramcis facilities. We are looking for an individual who has a particular interest in alternative firing practices and glaze applications.

The residency offers:

A stipend of £200/month
 · Self-catering accommodation 
· Use of facilities
 · Up to six firings of the ceramics kiln (further firings will be charged at cost)

In return the graduate resident would be expected to:

Dedicate 16 hours per week towards the smooth running of the ceramics studio, working alongside our Ceramics Technician 
· Develop studio practice and a new body of work 
· Look after the ceramic studio (with assistance from the SSW Senior Technician)
 · Set-up a community/outreach day

Residents will need to provide their own materials (available through SSW at cost). Assistance will be given to find an external exhibition venue for the work created while in residence.

Facilities: As well as a large communal studio space the ceramic studio has a medium and small kiln, as well as access to a large kiln in the Foundry. There is one electric wheel and two paddle wheels, a glaze area, and SSW is in the process of developing a glaze booth.

Deadlines for applications: 5pm 26 February 2015.

To apply please send a cover letter, short statement regarding your work, a digital portfolio or web link, an up to date CV and complete the Residency Application Cover Sheet. The application can be downloaded from our website under ‘Residency Application’

Zane Logan, Clemson University MFA in Art, Curates Photographic Exhibition, "Depiction," at Riverworks Gallery


Show runs:  February 18-March 15, 2015
Reception:   Friday, March 6, 2015, 6-9 pm

Depiction is an exploration into the complexities that shape and form identity. Curator, Greenville Technical College's photography instructor, Zane Logan [MFA-Art, photography emphasis, 2011, Clemson University], designed the exhibition to encompass wide-ranging approaches to portraiture. The exhibition is a study in current photographic processes including wet plate, large format film, Polaroid, expired film, and digital capture.

Logan comments, "Artists were chosen for their unique approach to photographic portraiture and sensitivity to subject. This collection of imagery includes formally considered environmental portraiture, intimate studies of friends and family, typographic studies, informal snapshots, self-portraiture, and an exploration of a diverse range of media as evidence of the individual motivations of each photographer."

Current students made their photographs under the mentorship of Zane Logan extending the long-standing photography fellowship tradition originally established by Blake Praytor at Greenville Technical College. The selected photographers include Logan, his current students Kristen Bryant, Joy Hart, Elizabeth Kabakjian, Amanda Long, Heather Rhodes, Cody Satterfield, and Ginia Worrell, colleague Patrick Owens [BFA candidate, Art, Clemson University], and mentor Blake Praytor.

RIVERWORKS Gallery is operated by and for the faculty and students of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Greenville Technical College.  The gallery is located at 300 River Street, Suite 202, along the scenic Reedy River in downtown Greenville, South Carolina.

Clemson Art: Then & Now

Image Credit:  Claudia Dishon
Center for Visual Arts - Lee Gallery, 1-101 Lee Hall, 323 Fernow Street

February 3 – March 6, 2015


Artist Discussion

Thursday, February 5, 6 – 7 pm


Exhibit Reception 

Thursday, February 5, 7 – 8:30 pm

Clemson Art: Then & Now is inspired by transitions that naturally develop over time as artists create their work.  The exhibition is divided into two directions, the first is work completed in the print studio by artists during their education at Clemson as undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in the Department of Art. Professor Sydney A. Cross from the Department of Art at Clemson University selected the works for their excellence in skill and ideas. The second direction for the exhibit showcases a work identified by the selected artist that demonstrates their current research interests or a work that compliments the earlier work selected for the exhibition. The resulting conversation highlights an approach to creative research taking place across time and studio platforms.
