Julia Galloway, a ceramic artist and University of Montana professor, has earned a list of honors nationally and locally this year.

To acknowledge her, the Missoula Art Museum and Radius Gallery are throwing a “hometown celebration” on Thursday, May 25, at 5:30 p.m. at the MAM. It’s free

Here are the honors, according to a MAM news release:

She was named the 2023 Artist of the Year by Ceramics Monthly and the Ceramic Arts Network. According to the magazine, they’re selected “for work that reflects current aesthetics and for setting an example for ceramic artists by embracing current trends, technology, studio, marketing, and/or community-focused practices.”
