Undergraduate Campus

The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) hosts one of the largest arts-related conferences in the world, with over 5,000 ceramic scholars, educators, students, studio artists, curators, and collectors attending. Portland-area galleries, museums, and colleges will host over 100 exhibitions from March 22–25.

The art department at Lewis & Clark College is hosting five of these exciting exhibitions featuring some of the finest artists working in clay today. The opening reception is Thursday, March 23, 5 to 9 p.m. Lobby of Fields Center for the Arts and Foyer of Albany Quadrangle. 

The on-campus exhibitions are showing at:
