On Exhibit Now
At Clay Art Center

TWO VIGILES:*
Bruce Dehnert
and Shawn
O'Connor

Join us for this exhibition featuring two potters who have distinctly different styles. This duo exhibition of wood fired vessels and sculpture will construct a cultural connection with our ancestors. Both artists utilize the random and considered effects that wood firing and flame have to offer as ways to realize and express their culturally relevant ceramic processes.

*In Caesar Augustus' ancient Rome there were teams of men called "vigiles" whose mandate was to enter burned buildings in order to determine the cause of the blaze



The Big Art Brick Giveaway!


Brooklyn artist Gail Heidel's installation Converge, composed of over 1000 handmade, press-molded sculptural bricks, is in its 5th incarnation as a temporary outdoor sculptural wall outside Clay Art Center's Gallery. Heidel is ready to give the work a permanent home. Visitors are invited to select bricks from the wall as a token of their experience at Clay Art Center. Edge your garden. Create a mini outdoor sculpture. Help us deconstruct Converge and construct your own unique brick sculpture at home.

Reminder!

Announcing Our 2014-15 Barbara Rittenberg Fellowship and Artist-In-Residence Recipients

Clay Art Center is pleased to announce that Kelley Donohue will be our 2014-15 Barbara Rittenberg Fellow. Kelley Donahue grew up in Northern California and received her B.A. in art studio from Humboldt State University. Primarily a painter, her focus shifted to clay at the end of undergrad. She then spent two years of independent focus in the studio at H.S.U. In 2012 she moved to Alfred, New York to pursue an M.F.A. in ceramics, at the New York State College of Ceramics and just completed the program.

Matthew Smith will be our new 2014/2015 Artist-in-Residence. Matt is an artist and educator who has been working in clay for 10 years. He was born and raised in Indiana and went to Anderson University to receive a B.A. in Art Education with an emphasis in ceramics. After teaching elementary art in public schools for six years, he spent this last year as a special student at Syracuse University. During several summers he has been a student, teaching assistant, and studio technician at the Chautauqua School of Art in western New York. When his hands aren't in clay, he enjoys being outdoors, reading, and working on his online video series where he interviews ceramists talking about their favorite pots. He looks forward to this year at CAC as he prepares a portfolio for graduate school applications and is delighted he will be back in the classroom teaching.

And last but not least, we are happy to report that Ron Geibel, CAC's current 2013-14 Rittenberg Fellow, will be staying on for a second year as an Artist-in-Residence!
Ron Geibel is excited to extend his stay at the Clay Art Center for the 2014-2015 year where he will continue to teach. Concurrently, during the 2014 fall semester, Geibel will be filling a sabbatical replacement in ceramics at Hofstra University. In the coming months, Geibel will be preparing work for the following shows: "Contemporary Humor," at the Indianapolis Art Center, "Sexual Politics," at the Northern Clay Center and a solo exhibition entitled "Picture Perfect," at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford in the fall.
