Clay on Country celebrates the richness of ceramic practice in the central desert region. A diverse and eclectic survey, this exhibition includes the works of over forty artists. Established ceramic artists have been brought together with artists working experimentally and those incorporating clay as a medium in their multi-disciplinary practices. The artists have produced accomplished, insightful and contemporary works that reflect the culturally and historically rich and complex region where they live and work.

Clay on Country was developed by Artback NT to coincide with the 16th Australian Ceramics Triennale held in Alice Springs. The national tour is being funded by Visions of Australia. Curated by Visual Arts staff, Jo Foster and Neridah Stockley, it is a celebration of clay, community, culture and creativity.
