The Rio Grande Ceramic Residency

This program is a first-of-its-kind local month-long Ceramic Residency Program that began in the Summer of 2022 in collaboration with Carla Hughes Studio. This program gave artists a stipend, studio space, equipment access, materials, and guidance for creating socially engaged work. Applications for 2023 – TBD.

The Rio Grande Ceramic Residency Program’s 2022 recipient, Souther Recio, exhibited Blooming Feels Weird, which premiered on September 30, 2022. .

The exhibit focused on body positivity and self-acceptance.
