Monday, December 5th from 7 – 8pm

Clay Art Center presents a Virtual Meet and Greet to welcome our 2022 – 2023 Artists In Residence. Join Avery Wells, Jon Green (Rittenberg Artist in Residence) and Jess Levin (Westchester Community Foundation Fellow) online as they present their work and discuss their processes and practices to date. We are excited to have them all here at Clay Art Center and look forward to seeing them in the studio, the classrooms and the gallery.

Free to Register Online.

Avery Wells received her MFA from SUNY New Paltz and also holds BAs in Art History and Ceramics from UNC Asheville. Her works have been exhibited in group shows and craft fairs through western North Carolina and the Hudson Valley. Avery’s vessels and botanical sculptures explore feminine histories in the decorative arts and seek an alternate route away from traditional standards of beauty and craft.

Born in a Mexican-American family, Jon Green is entertained by the absurd nature of the American-Dream. Jon completed his BFA at the University of Montana with a minor in Art History, and worked as a studio assistant for Julia Galloway, Trey Hill, Casey Zablocki, and Anton Alvarez. Jon has attended Red Lodge Clay Center’s ASPN program, RLCC’s Long-term Residency, as well as an Artist in Residency at Medalta. Jon’s work pays homage to the craftspeople and merging customs of the Americas through aggrandizing objects and ornamentation.

Jess Levin has earned a BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase, NY, concentrating in ceramics with hints of fabrics to show the balance between the soft and the fragile. They use a bright, colorful, cartoonish sculpting style to bring to life a narrative of self-exploration and expression.
