The ceramic exhibitions hosted by Brookfield Office Properties are just a few of the hundreds of ceramic based exhibitions that will be hosted at venues throughout the Houston area in conjunction with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts annual conference, which will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center from March 20-23, 2013. Each exhibition is curated or organized with its own unique theme in mind. Works span the spectrum of ceramic forming, finishing, and firing techniques and were created by a range of individuals from many backgrounds including university level students, clay enthusiasts, and professional artists from around the country.
