Originally developed to showcase the talent of our member artists, the exhibition remains one of the most impactful ways to celebrate the important role our members play in the cultural life of our community. Open to most media and all themes, the exhibition promises to spotlight a diverse group of students, emerging makers, mid-career artists, and established professionals.
The juror for the 2016 Biennial Members Exhibition is James Lawton, Professor of Ceramics and Director of the Department of Artisanry at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. James Lawton earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Constructive Design at Florida State University in 1976, and MFA in Ceramics at Louisiana State University in 1980. In his career as professor and artist, Lawton has been awarded the National Endowment Visual Arts Fellowship, and was elected to the International Academy of Ceramics in 2011.
