I am proud to announce that I am a recipient of a 2017 Jerome Ceramic Artist Project Grant, awarded by Northern Clay Center. The project period is April 1 - December 31, 2017.
The following information is from the Northern Clay Center website, northernclaycenter.org.
Susan Feigenbaum plans to use the time and space provided by the award to consider new compositional presentations for her work and to aggressively pursue corporate commissions. She will do a deep dive into ceramic chemistry to expand her palette. Finally, Feigenbaum will continue her critical dialogue with her mentorships developed during her time in NCC’s MN NICE program.
This year’s selection panel consisted of our winter McKnight Resident Artist, Eva Kwong, who is also an educator and an author; visiting artist, Pattie Chalmers, curator of our spring exhibition, Roadside Attractions, and professor at Southern Illinois University–Carbondale; and local potter and NCC teaching artist, Peter Jadoonath, who is a former Jerome recipient himself.
We wish to thank each of them for a day of very thoughtful deliberations; their valuable feedback is available to the grant recipients and applicants as a form of professional development.
2017 marks the 27th year of support for this program from the Jerome Foundation. The Foundation supports emerging artists in Minnesota and New York City who, among other qualifications:
- take risks and embrace challenges
- are rigorous in their approach to creation and production
- are under-recognized by their peers.
