Art Museum of South Texas

One hundred ceramic works will be on view this summer in an exhibition on loan from the permanent collection of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts held the National Ceramic Competition this year, continuing an 18-year tradition of support and recognition of contemporary ceramic arts. The first competition was held in 1986. It remained an annual exhibit through 1996, when due to its growing size and popularity, it became a biannual event.  A nationally recognized juror selects works of craft to be purchased for the collection, from which this exhibition has been selected. The summer exhibition is partially funded by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation.
