Of 232 entries submitted this year, 103 were selected and received for exhibition. Selections include works that have social, cultural and political content as well as biomorphic and geometric abstraction, and artwork representing nature in literal, conceptual and organic ways. The jurors worked very thoughtfully to select the artworks for this year’s exhibition. The jurors utilized their expertise, objective criteria and personal preferences to select the work, and primarily, based their selections on both technical skill and uniqueness or originality.

Established in 1971, Ink & Clay is an annual competition of printmaking, drawing, ceramic ware, clay sculpture, installation and mixed media utilizing any variety of “ink” or “clay” as a material. The exhibition is sponsored by the W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and is underwritten by the generosity of the late Col. James “Jim” H. Jones with additional support from the Office of the University President. This year’s jurors are Joan Takayama-Ogawa, Nancy Haselbacher, ceramics and printmaking faculty, respectively, from the Otis College of Art and Design, and Anne Martens of the J. Paul Getty Museum.
