Across the Divide encompassed the vast array of contemporary ceramics in the sculptural and installation genres. This exhibition used the Continental Divide as a metaphor for the artist working in clay that has separated them from traditional techniques and stereotypes within the medium. Artists were encouraged to submit work that pushes traditional boundaries of the ceramic medium in its treatment of material and subject. This exhibition was open to all artists, national and international.
The juror for Across the Divide was Steven Schaeffer, a ceramic sculptor whose work has been shown nationally as well as internationally including the Florence Biennale and the Ceramic Biennial International Competition in Korea. Schaeffer teaches Ceramics at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.
