Does RACC support them enough? Emphatically, NO... but we should be valuing and supporting them. Here are two to check out this weekend. Th

Well, Ive been enjoying running around to so many thesis group shows (I prefer no to see the solos because Im more interested in the work they make after art school).

Not NCECA picks

Nothing against the NCECA conference (I've collected ceramics myself since college) but like many arts people I crave variety. That said I am looking for a new coffee mug, which shouldn't be impossible in Mudtopia Portland. Take all that into account and here are my weekend picks:
