Arrived just in time to dump my bags & head over to the conference headquarters for a quick check-in, where I received my official NCECA badge & bag of conference materials. We grabbed our shuttle bus & we were off on the Route 2 tour - Center City, University City & South Philly. There are an amazing amount of ceramic shows here for NCECA. There were 4 different routes to choose from. Highlights from this route (for us) were: Sub Octo Gallery (largest East Coast showing of contemporary ceramics by Val Cushing), University of the Arts Building hosting multiple shows, Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery for the National Juried Student Exhibition (our roomate, Ariel Bowman, has a piece in this show!) and finally, exhausted, we dragged ourselves to Philadelphia's Magic Gardens. This is the life work of mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar. He has mosaic'd every square inch of his building, inside & outside. A truly breathtaking and amazing experience, we are going back for more tomorrow. Back in time to change and head over for the Opening Ceremonies, lots of running into old friends and planning for tomorrow. Terry Gross of National Public Radio, the Keynote speaker, was wonderful with her tales of the good,the bad, and the ugly of the 30 years of interviewing personalities of all walks of life. Now truly exhausted, I will leave you with a few photos of our gallery tour...much more tomorrow...

ROY commented on Bruce Metcalf's blog post Getting Serious about Getting Gray
"Hi Bruce, I admire how provocative you are about ACC and it was interesting to read about the "dinosaurs." However, I think old women artists are "discovered" more often in their older age. The latest issue in the Wall Street…"
