Contemporary Clay juror Jim Romberg has reviewed the juried entries and selected a varied range of artists from across the country and Canada to represent this media in its most impacting forms and techniques.  Ninety-three artists submitted 235 works and 65 works by 53 artists were accepted.  On the jury process for Contemporary Clay 2014, Jim Romberg’s primary standard of judgment was what he perceived to be the quality of the work. Jim says, “A juried show is a beginning of a dialogue important to the individual and the field.  It proclaims standards and showcases significant accomplishments in the field.  This exhibition accomplishes these and I hope the dialogue it stimulates will be loud and far-reaching.  The quality of work certainly merits such attention.”  

Jim Romberg has preselected six invited artists:  Nick Joerling of Penland, NC; Elaine Olafson Henry of Sheridan, WY; Patrick Crabb of Santa Ana, CA; Susan Filley of Chapel Hill, NC; Adam Welch of Brooklyn, NY; and Joe Bova of Santa Fe, NM.  For more information call 970-243-7337 x 1 or go to The Art Center website at www.gjartcenter.org.
