Residency Applications due April 15
Clay Art Center is accepting applications for year-long residencies through April 15. Join us in September and spend a year with an amazing community!
Residencies and Fellowships are one year long and commence in September. These opportunities are uniquely designed for emerging artists who need time and space to develop their voices. Residents and Fellows gain invaluable experience teaching classes and contribute their technical knowledge and expertise by managing many jobs at the studio. CAC provides a supportive ceramic community, while appreciating the need for privacy and independent work.
CAC artists share technical information as well as routine studio chores, and any CAC resident will benefit from this co-operative experience. We offer adult and children's classes in wheel throwing, hand-building, and sculpture, and there are always excellent opportunities for teaching.

New exhibit at the Jane Hartsook Gallery
April 10 – May 8, 2015
"Matter of Time" (affection, affliction)
Artist Reception, Friday, April 10, 6 – 8 p.m.
The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present the New York solo exhibition debut of Jeremy Hatch. Hatch, an artist based in Montana, has done the unimaginable – cast a chain link fence. In this large-scale installation Hatch has reimagined the space into a porcelain virtuosic performance bisecting the gallery space with the fence weighted down with locks. During the exhibition, visitors will be able to add their own locks to the fence. "Matter of Time" (affection, affliction) builds upon my use of the physical and psychological properties of porcelain as a means to explore themes of memory, relationships, nostalgia and failure. The installation consists of a cast porcelain chain-link fence running the length of the gallery and relies on viewer participation in order to complete the work. From a library of plaster molds, gallery visitors are invited to cast a lock, inscribe it, and attach it to the ceramic chain-link panels. At the conclusion of the exhibition, the fence and amassed locks will be fired, fusing the objects together, serving as a permanent record of the event.
Over the past decade the ritual of attaching ‘love locks’ to public bridges, fences, gates and other urban structures has become an international phenomenon. My interest lies in the inherent contradictions contained within this seemingly innocuous romantic gesture. The custom can also be seen as a form of destructive vandalism. Just as sections of historic bridges are collapsing under the weight of accumulated locks, my porcelain replica risks a similar fate. Rather than struggling to maintain a sense of security, it embraces the potential for failure and the realization that vulnerability is fundamental.”—Jeremy Hatch
