Artists in Residence

Each year, we welcome several talented emerging artists to Clay Art Center as part of our Artist in Residence program. The program commences each September, and is designed to allow artists the time and space they need to develop their voices. Residents teach classes, share their expertise, assist with studio responsibilities, and contribute greatly to the artistic vibrance of the Center.  Meet our 2016-17 Artists, and look for their artwork in our Shop.

Wall has exhibited extensively and was commissioned by the Museum of Science and History for their permanent collection. Her work was featured in Exposure in Ceramics Monthly in 2015. While working at a craft pottery store, Wall began a small clay program to offer the Jacksonville community the experience to work with clay.
