The University of Dallas is proud to host the 2015 University of Dallas Regional Juried Ceramic Competition. The celebration will gather contemporary ceramic artworks of the region, both functional and sculptural. The competition will offer an opportunity for ceramic artists to exhibit their work in the highly charged metropolitan area of North Texas. We look forward to giving Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery visitors the opportunity to experience the mastery of the ceramic artists of our region.
