WHS Junior Miki Chiang, was accepted into the Ceramic National Exhibition!
Her work will be on display in Richmond, VA from March 25-27th.

From the Exhibition Foundation:
“The best work in our exhibition is consistently judged to be better than undergraduate and much of the graduate work produced nationwide… Designed to showcase the best K12 ceramic work made in the country, the exhibition takes place in a different city each year in conjunction with the annual conference of The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). The NCECA conference is the preeminent ceramic event in the US annually, gathering professionals from universities, colleges, museums, art galleries and the ceramic arts world to a host city to view exhibitions, demonstrations, talks and other ceramic events. For that week, the host city is the world capital of ceramics.”
