I'm excited to start my NCECA/crafthaus blog: Emerging Artist Report. This year NCECA is in Seattle! I will head there in one week from today- my first stop is Portland, OR to visit my friend and potter, Dara Hartman. We will explore Portland and visit a few key art related institutions including Oregon College of Art and Craft and possibly ADX. Then up to Seattle, our first stop is Herban Feast SODO for the Art of the North West Table Exhibition. Tickets are still available!

At NCECA, I will be meeting with the six Emerging Artists to interview them for the blog report. I will begin posting the reports in April! If you are going to NCECA you can attend the Emerging Artist presentations in person Saturday March 31at 9–9:45 am in Ballroom 6A–C. View the 2012 NCECA program here.
