Focus: Back to Work, Back to School

The September issue always feels a little bit like the first day of a new school year for me as we get back into the rhythm of the monthly magazine schedule. This year I feel that way even more so, as I step into my new role as editor.
This month we are focusing on great work made by up and coming artists in both our undergraduate showcase and Liz Howe’s review of the NCECA National Student Juried Exhibition.
Expanding the focus beyond the classroom, Kathleen Whitney discusses the work of Theaster Gates, who has a community-centered approach to mentorship and learning. Through his artwork, he is focused on helping others, and posing important social questions related to his personal experience.—Jessica Knapp, Editor.

On the cover: Bede Clarke's bowl, 12 in. (30 cm) in diameter, wheel-thrown and altered earthenware, slips, underglazes, glaze, 2013.
