WE ARE CLAY
Baltimore Clayworks celebrates the beauty and versatility of clay and its ability to be a catalyst for building community with the exhibition We Are Clay. This show is generously sponsored by a grant from the NEA and will run through January 2021. The exhibition will be used as a vehicle to inspire a new wave of teachers by offering free ceramic workshops for non-clay artists and community leaders thereby enhancing our instructor pool while adding a tangible, expressive element to their own community engagement.
We are Clay was chosen as the theme to encompass the richness and resilience of the material. This title illustrates the possibilities and pliability in clay, its endurance and strength once transformed by the firing process, how it inhabits our daily rituals and the potent stories it can tell. In addition, it comes in so many shades, from porcelain to terracotta that echoes the diverse population that makes our country vibrant and beautiful. This exhibition illustrates that while we may come from different places, we share a commonality. A universal language of ceramics proving that art and creativity can bring us together and all are welcome.
GALLERY AND SHOP HOURS: open to the public from 10-5, Tuesday - Sunday. Masking and social distancing required.
