The Gallery Exhibit features the work of professional ceramic artists including studio manager Charles Freeland, instructors Geoff Bird and Mathilda Tanner and their students’ work. The Annual Exhibit will feature functional, decorative and sculptural works of extraordinary detail and workmanship.

The Clay Studio is adjacent to BMCA in the renovated old City Garage and is accessible off the back parking lot. The Studio offers classes to beginning and intermediate students, is open seven days a week and has ample open studio time for students to perfect their work and to experiment with new techniques and glazes. A class is an excellent holiday gift for someone who wants to experiment with or rekindle their passion for clay. Gift certificates are available for this worthy endeavor. An Independent Study option is available for experienced potters who desire studio time and a friendly community of companion artists. A handicapped-accessible wheel makes this opportunity to be a part of the arts available to the whole community, those with bad backs included. The Clay Studio supports a vibrant local clay community happy to grow and learn.

Stop by the Gallery in the Main Building to see what they’ve created!
