Ink and Clay 38Established in 1971, Ink & Clay is an annual competition of prints, drawings, ceramic ware and clay sculpture, sponsored by the W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. The primary underwriting is through the generosity of Col. Jim Jones. Ink & Clay is an exhibition open to all of the Western States including: AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, ND, NM, NV, OK, OR, SD, TX, UT, WA, WY. A virtual catalog of the exhibition will be mounted on the gallery’s website. A PDF version of the catalog will be available for download. Each artist will receive a page featuring an image of their accepted work and an artist’s statement.
INK: printmaking and drawing – traditional or experimental. (What constitutes a print or a drawing remains open.)
CLAY: Ceramic ware or clay sculpture. (Again, the question as to what is legitimate remains open.) Other materials may be combined with clay. Oversized and experimental works are encouraged in both media, however, please call to discuss
exhibition possibilities, e.g. the laws of physics, before submitting your entry.
The Kellogg Art Gallery will provide $5000 for 10 cash awards. In addition, we are very pleased to offer a special purchase award this year, The James H. Jones Memorial Purchase Prize, generously sponsored by Mr. Bruce M. Jewett.
