NCECA 2019 Exhibit

Material Impulse: A Confluence of Clay Artists

Robert Siracusa, director of Arizona’s  ARC Contemporary Fine Art, will be curating the exhibit Material Impulse: A Confluence of Clay Artists in conjunction with the upcoming 2019 conference  National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Claytopia, to be held in Minneapolis from March 27 - 30, 2019.  NCECA 2019


The show is a survey of contemporary ceramics by Jeff Reich (AZ), Farraday Newsome (AZ), Zach Tate (IN), Novie Trump (AZ), Tom Bartel (OH), Magda Gluszek (AZ), Undine Brod (NY), Ben Roti (AZ), Thaddeus Erdahl (NJ), and Travis Winters (PA), all of whom exhibit at ARC Contemporary Fine Art and nationally.


Mr. Siracusa writes, The timeless art of ceramic sculpture has always been one of deep personal expression. Regardless of whether it is created for necessity or for decorative purposes, the hands of the creator are there, manipulating the material to its end result.

“When I began exhibiting ceramic art in 1997, I was always astonished at the versatility of the material, and moved by the manner with which each artist managed to find something new in every piece and every surface treatment.


The exhibit will be held in Aaron Neumann’s Corner Store Gallery NE, located in the NE Minneapolis Arts District. Mr. Neumann writes, Since the theme of NCECA this year is “Claytopia” which is also driven by a fascination with materials, collaborating with Robert to explore what is going on in the world of clay in the southwest region and beyond was an irresistible opportunity.

Indigo Street Studio Landscape Note: The Great Backyard Bird Count

               Photo: Cooper’s Hawk, from Cornell University’s All About Birds webpage.


This year we participated in Cornell University’s annual Great Backyard Bird Count  GBBC), observing from our native landscaped property here in the Sonoran Desert at Indigo Street Studio. It was held February 15 - 18, 2019.


From the Audubon website describing the event:

Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org. Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, you can participate from your backyard or anywhere in the world.


Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. Last year, more than 160,000 participants submitted their bird observations online, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded.”


We observed many of the usual suspects in our yard, including Gambel’s Quails, Anna’s Hummingbirds, Curve Billed Thrashers, and Gila Woodpeckers, an American Kestrel, Verdins, Cactus Wrens, and others, but we were also treated to a Black Vulture (we usually see Turkey Vultures) and a low-flying Cooper’s Hawk. It was fun!
