Del Harrow honored as an emerging artist in ceramics

University Park, Pa. -- Del Harrow, assistant professor of art at Penn State, has been named one of six emerging artists in ceramics by the National Council of Education in the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). The NCECA Emerging Artist program gives early career artists who show exceptional promise the opportunity to present their work to an international audience at NCECA annual conferences. Harrow presented his art in Phoenix, Ariz. on April 11.

Harrow, a native of Portland, Ore., has exhibited his work throughout the United States, Australia, Costa Rica, China and Holland. He recently completed a 13-week residency at the European Ceramic Work Center in collaboration with David Celento, assistant professor of architecture. Harrow and Celento have developed a partnership with a project, CeramiSKIN, where they are investigating the creation of ornamental ceramic cladding systems for buildings using digital technologies.

Harrow holds a B.S. from the University of Oregon and an M.F.A. from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Before coming to Penn State in 2007, he was a lecturer at the Kansas City Art Institute, Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art.
