BEMIDJI — Watermark Art Center is seeking submissions for its "It's Only Clay National Competition and Exhibition" through Sept. 30.

The exhibit is a juried ceramics competition focusing on and dedicated to functional clay vessels. Each submission is judged in four areas: function, form/aesthetic, craftsmanship and surface design.

Selected works are a part of the exhibit opening at Watermark on Nov. 4. Cash prize money is awarded for first, second and third places. Additional purchase awards are made and the chosen pieces are added to the Margaret H. Harlow Collection at BSU, a release said.

Juried by a select guest artist each year, the 2022 It's Only Clay jury is Delores Fortuna.

Fortuna will offer an all-day "Wheel Demo" workshop on Nov. 5. Participants will learn about working with porcelain clay from preparation and handling of the clay, to strategies used for throwing different forms, assembly and finish work.
