Clay Art Center in Port Chester is promising “piles of pottery” for sale at bargain prices from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 2 to raise money for the center’s Audrey Greenwald Memorial Fund.
Ceramic artists from all over the tri-state area have donated their irregular, overstocked or outdated pieces of artwork to CAC; bowls, cups, mugs, handmade tiles, serving pieces, teapots, sculpture and more. Family-friendly food and activities throughout the day,i ncluding face painting, tile painting, hands-on clay, live music, and more. Families can register for our twenty-three summer camps. All proceeds from this event will go to the Audrey Greenwald Memorial Fund dedicated to updating and upgrading equipment at the Center.
This year’s event will coincide with the opening reception in our gallery for Takings, a new interactive clay and mixed media installation of work by New York clay artist Gail Heidel that promotes an emergent system that self-organizes communities while critiquing the use of eminent domain. The reception will be held on June 2 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. while Seconds Sales activities are going on. (The exhibit will run June 2 – July 6, 2012.)
