Welcome to the WCA

As a member of the Washington Clay Arts Association you are able to expand your personal and career development in ceramic art. We are an all-volunteer club which hosts two annual Socials, one major annual exhibition with cash awards, group sales, pit firings, potlucks, studio visits, and artist presentations. We connect a 400 (and counting) database of WCA Members, and Friends of the WCA.

Our list serve sends out clay news by email as it comes in, keeping ceramic artists current on statewide events in the larger clay arts community. You may send in your own posts to have them distributed. Equipment sales, openings, calls-to-art, workshop listings offered at community studios- we get the news to where it needs to go.

Our creativity comes from inspiring one another. We have great long-standing traditions, and constantly reinvent ourselves to respond to current needs. The WCA board approves all member proposals when there is a defined benefit to the ceramics community.

WCA funds can be accessed to help with gallery show expenses. For 2014 we will continue to upgrade our technological capacity and skill levels to get Washington Clay Artists ever more visible.

Board meetings are open. Members may contribute their ideas and branch out by connecting to other clay artists. With membership fees, we are able to purchase equipment for facilitating workshops, publicity, and to pay presenters. We are committed to promoting our members, especially those who want to help unite clay artists of Washington State.

The WCA has endured because all clay artists benefit when we act in the spirit of service to one another. Help extend the scope and reach of the WCA. Please renew your membership, or become a member today!

If you would like to access the WCA List serve (free) please send an email (using the email address with which you wish to receive the Clay Arts News) to wcaa.news@gmail.com

To contact the board members with any other questions or comments, you may also reach us at: wcasubmissions@gmail.com

Staying connected, offering support for all clay artists. We are here for you!
