CERAMYSTIC 2020

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

 

CERAMYSTIC 2020, 17th EDITION 

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 

 

The 16th edition of Céramystic, which was a first for the Rozynski Art Centre, received 2,000 visitors from the Eastern Townships, Quebec, as well as the United States and Europe!

The success of this contemporary ceramics event stems, on the one hand, from the quality of the pieces presented by professional ceramists and, on the other hand, from the rural beauty of the site, bordered by the Niger River.

The cultural reputation of the Rozynski Art Centre as a place where musicians, poets, ceramists and sculptors converged, which was attracted by the famous couple Stanley and Wanda Rozynski in the sixties and seventies, makes the spirit of the place vibrate.

If you wish to apply, it is important to attach your curriculum vitae, your artistic approach (if this is your first participation) and 5 photos to the following email address: ceramystic@artsrozynski.com. The photos will be used for promotional and publicity purposes of the event.

Please fill out the following form before March 23, 2020, at midnight.
