had his ceramic work accepted into 2016 NCECA Invitational, Unconventional Clay: Engaged in Change. The exhibit will be in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO from February 26 - April 24, 2016. "Artists whose process or approach to the medium could be considered unconventional or non-traditional were selected. NCECA plans to highlight each artist’s process as well as their work, so viewers can be enlightened to their unusual approach to clay."

Graduating undergraduate art major, Amanda Bury has accepted an offer for a year of post-baccalaureate study at the University of Montana. Amanda will continue her work in utilitarian ceramics by taking internship and advanced research credits under lead mentor Julia Galloway and will benefit from critique and guidance from other ceramics faculty as well. The post-bac offers continued education and studio and kiln facilities as well as interaction and networking through the universities visiting artist program, and nearby ceramics organizations such as the Clay Studio of Missoula and the Archie Bray Foundation.
