For 60 years, artists have been advancing their careers at Clay Art Center. Our Residency program, which commences each year in September, is uniquely designed for emerging artists who need time and space to develop their voices.
Please join us for a Virtual Artist Talk to officially welcome our 2021 – 2022 Artist In Residence Anny Chen and Rittenberg Artist In Residence Able Broyles to Clay Art Center. Anny and Able will each present a slideshow of their work to date, and discuss their work in progress. We look forward to hearing and seeing more from each of them in the coming year.
This is a free event. Register Online.
