For those of us who create with polymer clay, 2020 has been a year of new opportunities for virtual workshops with people from down the street and around the globe. With so much creating, learning, and investigating taking place, members of the board decided it was the perfect time to showcase creations from around the globe in an IPCA Global Exhibition. This exhibit is different from other events offered in previous years in that it will be a virtual exhibition (think temporary museum exhibit) featuring 5 galleries, each dedicated to a single art form including: Miniatures, Containers, Two Dimensional Work, Three Dimensional Work, Jewelry and Wearable Artwork. Entries in each of these galleries will have artist-selected, searchable hashtags that will include a brief bio, contact information, and the artist’s location on the globe. The exhibit opens 15 December 2020 on the IPCA website.

Our Saturday time moves later two hours every four weeks. We are now at 7pm Chicago time on Saturdays and it is getting a little late for some of our friends.
So... now we are also meeting on Wednesdays at 9 am on Zoom!
Below you will find information for the next couple weeks for each of these Zoom times and a time converter. Note the times are in Central Standard Time (Chicago).
