Roving Reporter | "San Angelo Hosts National Clay Competition" | Article and 11 Photos by Vicki Totten

This bi-annual exhibit brings out
some of the best clay artists.
There was no shortage of Rockport connections at last weekend's 21st San Angelo National Clay Competition in San Angelo, Texas. In addition to several Rockport artists and ceramic teachers, many of the clay artists seen annually at Rockport's Clay Expo were spotted at the event.

The competition brought out hundreds of clay artists, with shows and talks spread out all over San Angelo, including San Angelo University, the Museum of Fine Arts, several local galleries, and the Chicken Farm Art Center.

The Museum of Fine Arts had two floors reserved for the exhibit.

In addition to the competition, there were several connected shows, an invited artist, and several workshops.  A weekend show featuring member's work from the Texas Clay Arts Association included several artists who have either shown or taught at the Rockport Center for the Arts and whose work can also be seen in some of Rockport's galleries and at the annual Clay Expo. 

If you missed the opening, the shows, with the exception of the Texas Clay Arts member show,  are up through June 26.  More information is available through the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.
