Championing the arts in Westchester for over 60 years, Clay Art Center is a hub for ceramic artists, and has been named one of the best places to take ceramics classes in the US by Artsy. Spring Fest is a great opportunity to come and enjoy this Westchester arts destination while shopping for pottery bargains. It is fun for the whole family with hands-on clay activities, a chance to try the potter’s wheel, face painting, raffle & food.
Shop hundreds of original, hand-made pottery pieces, donated by tri-state area ceramic artists, available to the public at greatly reduced prices, with 100% of revenues going to help raise the $20,000 needed to replace one of our kilns. Our equipment and unique facility are essential components of Clay Art Center's ability to fulfill its mission and provide access to the arts for the entire community.
In addition to the great activities and wonderful pottery bargains, we will be holding a raffle of exciting items donated by Skutt (a potter’s wheel), Diamond Core Tools (clay tools), Pet Pantry Warehouse & more. Winners will be announced at Spring Fest.
As June 1 is the closing day of their Pots for Pets exhibit, Clay Art Center will also host a pet adoption day with Adopt-a-Dog, a Greenwich, CT shelter, whose mission is to save, socialize and secure loving homes for unwanted or abandoned dogs while creating a community, in a non-kill shelter, where there is a home for every dog. Come and meet dogs that are looking for their ‘furever’ home. Also in support of shelter animals, Pet Pantry Warehouse and Tischman Pets Photography, will be present.
Animal Instinct, dedicated to our furry friends, is our year-long gallery focus for 2019, exploring the animal kingdom through a series of four core exhibitions and related programming. The exhibits will examine how artists use anthropomorphism to convey messages about relationships, how we coexist with animals in the wild and in our homes, and the importance of preserving the animal kingdom to maintain the delicate balance of our shared ecosystem. The exhibits include: The Great Race, Pots for Pets, The Emotional Animal and Julia Galloway: Endangered Species Project.
