Thomas to Receive Regional Award of Excellence
The Ash Street Project is honored to announce that Thomas has been named one of the recipients of the Regional Award of Excellence from the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). This award is in honor of his commitment to the field, both at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, where he retired Professor Emeritus, and at The Ash Street Project, where he has dedicated his retirement to mentoring emerging artists. It will be presented during the annual conference in March.
Namita WIggers and Nicole Nathan, also award recipients, will be honored for their exceptional work with the Museum of Contemporary Craft.
The award ceremony is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in the Oregon Ballroom (203, Level 2) on Friday, March 24th, from 4:45-6:15 pm. Following the ceremony, we will return to the Ash Street Project for our Friday night opening reception to celebrate Thomas as well as all of the artists exhibiting on site.
