5th Annual Members Juried Exhibition
July 2, 2016 - July 30, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday,
July 2, 2016     5-7pm

It's that time of the year when the Saratoga Clay Arts Center invites their Member Artists to submit their best, current work for our Annual Members Juried Exhibition.

This year's juror is Jessica-Putnam Phillips.  In 2013 Jessica completed her Masters of Fine Art in Visual Arts from Lesley University and exhibited her work as part of the Boston Young Contemporaries Exhibition and the New England Collective at the Galatea Gallery. She spent 2013-14 as an artist-in-residence at the Saratoga Clay Arts Center, where she further explored her “Service Women” series of ceramic platters and plates that depict female service women in combat juxtaposed with traditional tableware motifs and decoration.

In 2014 three of her pieces were selected to be part of Transformation 9, the Raphael Founders Prize at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA. Jessica’s work was featured in the February 2015 issue of Ceramics Monthly and was part of the two-artist exhibition “Postwar Perspective” at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, PA and her work was included in the 2015 Potters Council Juried Exhibition at NCECA in Providence, RI.

Currently her work is featured as part of “Art, and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist Veterans” at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, CA and in September at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, CA. Last Fall Jessica participated in the renowned artist residency program, A.I.R. Vallauris in the South of France, spending September and October creating a new series of work and culminating in an international exhibition.

In addition to exhibiting her work and maintaining her studio, Jessica is actively involved in the local art community. She is the director of the Canfield Gallery, a board member of the Vermont Crafts Council and teaches ceramics at the Community College of Vermont and at the Vermont Art Exchange in North Bennington.
