March Newsletter

February has been a busy month for ceramics, including a CH program with Jessica Kreutter at Box 13, several gallery shows, some work in CAMH, and a workshop at the UH-CL. Check out the newsletter and the ClayHouston Group Facebook page for upcoming opportunities.  The more we ceramic artists support galleries that are showing ceramic work, the more ceramic work will be shown!  Let’s make an effort as ClayHouston to get out into the community.   Demonstrating artists from ClayHouston are participating in  Craft Community Day at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft on March 4. Jump on the bandwagon and go to shows and events that are listed in the newsletter and on FB.  Activate our community!
