Clay Art Center is celebrating pottery for the “furry members” of the family with handmade dog and cat bowls, with 10% of all gallery sales will go to Adopt-a-Dog, a Greenwich nonprofit organization with a shelter in Armonk, NY.
The Opening Reception is Saturday, April 6, 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
Pots for Pets is in the Gallery April 6 – June 1.
Pots for Pets is a national invitational of utilitarian works made for the “furry members” of our family.
Our pets deserve the loving kindness of handmade pottery, so this exhibition will feature dog and cat bowls, bird fountains, princess perches and other objects of our pet-friendly imaginations by 50 ceramic artists. Clay Art Center is happy to partner with Adopt-a-Dog, 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. 10% of all gallery sales from the exhibit go to Adopt-a-Dog.
Related Programming – Spring Fest, Saturday, June 1
For the closing of Pots for Pets, Clay Art Center will host an Adopt-a-Pet day with Adopt-a-Dog for their biannual Spring Fest event.
This is also a unique opportunity to shop 100’s of original, hand-made pottery donated by tri-state area artists and available to the public at greatly reduced prices. It’s always a fun event for the whole family with hands-on activities available to everyone.
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.
