The Celebration of Clay Returns to Albuquerque. 

The Celebration of Clay, the annual member exhibition features diverse styles of ceramic arts from members all across New Mexico. This annual event is hosted in different cities throughout the state, with the idea of including and welcoming clay enthusiasts from each area.

This year’s event occurs during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and will be held at Gallery Ho’zho’, located in the Chaco Hotel, across from the Sawmill Market. We are delighted to be in Gallery Hózhó during this years Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists (NMPCA) gives ceramic artists from around the state the opportunity interact with other clay artists and to display and sell their most accomplished achievements.  These are ‘makers’ who find real joy in seeing and creating three-dimensional clay art.  The variety of ceramic art is astounding; from small teacups and other beautiful functional items, to large clay sculpture designed for outdoor experience or animate our indoor spaces.     

Our website features the work of our past exhibitions and please visit Gallery Ho’zho and enjoy the work in person!  As you know walking among art, especially ceramic art; gives you an experience that delights the soul.
