Lots of News from Clay Art Center!
Clay Art Center receives $16,000 Grant from Westchester Community Foundation. The Emily & Harold E. Valentine and Evelyn Gable Clark Fund is again supporting the Young Artist Fellowship. This grant allows CAC to engage and connect with a promising and talented artist by providing financial support, which allows the fellow to devote more time to developing his voice as an artist. This year's recipient is Jose Tlaczani, a new Manhattanville College graduate and White Plains resident.
Clay Art Center is honored to have been the Arts Category winner and a finalist for the Impact100 Westchester transformational program grant for the second year in a row. As the category winner, we received an operating grant of $9,000. While we ultimately did not win the major grant, we are happy to have met the incredible group of women who comprise this grants organization, and offer our congratulations to the overall winners.
This month, CAC received a first time grant of $5,000 from the Robert Lehman Foundation, in support of “In Our Backyard,” a year-long series of exhibitions and educational programming which focuses on artists who have gravitated to the NY metropolitan area and identify themselves as regionally-based ceramic artists. This programming will begin in 2016!
The Lily Palmer Fry Memorial Trust Fund generously donated $2,500 to our Sponsor-A-Child fund, which will support full-day, weeklong summer camps for 6 children. We are grateful for their continued support.
