Support bringing nationally known clay artists to Houston for demonstrations and talks

About the Project

Each year ClayHouston brings two nationally known artists to Houston to demonstrate their work in a two-day symposium.  This year, Virgil Ortiz and Lauren Gallaspy were the presenters at “Building Narratives: Mythology and Poetry in Clay”. Perry Price, Director of the Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, chaired the artists’ panel discussion and MFAH Core critic Laura Wellen spoke about “On Poetry, with Artists”.  We reached out to students and educators, as well as to our members and other artists in the community.  We need your help to continue to bring first-class clay events to Houston.  Please support the ClayHouston Symposium Series.

On Tuesday November 28, your gift up to $250 will be matched, making it even more valuable.  All donations to ClayHouston are tax deductible.  ClayHouston supports Houston artists working in ceramics.  We provide educational opportunities, creative activities, and social groups.  It provides a home for all who love ceramics.
