Dear ClayHouston Family,
By now many of us in ClayHouston have shared our stories… some with total house flooding; others more fortunate. Our thoughts are with our CH friends and the others in Houston who have lost so much. Watch the CH Facebook page for resources, including the Ceramic Store, that are providing disaster relief to flooded artists.
The deadline is upcoming for the ClayHouston member show (9/15), and we have a program with Hans Molzberger at HBU on September 19. Let’s stay in touch with each other and come out to share community as the hurricane recovery continues.
If you’d like to be more involved, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
