Baltimore Clayworks Invites You to the Opening Reception of “ORIGIN” juried by Kensuke Yamada

Baltimore Clayworks is excited to present ORIGIN Juried by Kensuke Yamada that will be on exhibit from September 9 – November 4, 2023. The Opening Reception will take place at Baltimore Clayworks Galleries on Saturday, September 9 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

ORIGIN is an exhibit that explores the concept of home and how it is defined, personally and culturally, by looking at different personal narratives, family histories, and cultural practices. It is the process of learning more about oneself and discovering the “true” self. It involves understanding what makes a person unique. Also, it requires people to be open to new experiences and willing to take risks to better understand who we are and what we want out of life. It can also involve reflecting on one’s past, understanding one’s values, and exploring one’s passions.
