The University of Dallas is proud to host the 2013 University of Dallas Regional Juried Ceramic Competition. The celebration will gather contemporary ceramic artworks of the region, both functional and sculptural. The University of Dallas Regional will offer an opportunity for ceramic artists to exhibit their work in the highly charged metropolitan area of North Texas. This event will offer visitors to the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery the mastery of the ceramic artists of our region. We again look forward to hosting this premier event.

Juror: Les Manning

A ceramic artist for more than thirty years, Les' very personal forms focus on the interpretation of the Canadian Rocky Mountain landscape where he lived for 25 years. His wheel thrown and altered forms capture the abstract qualities of this sculptural environment. These works have been exhibited and collected in Asia, Europe, Egypt, USA, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

Les is the former Director of Ceramics at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada, a very prominent international artists' residency program. Currently he is the Senior Artist in Residence at Medalta. He continues to stay active in the international ceramic community through exhibiting, teaching, and volunteer development work with international organizations.
