The ARTS Center in Clemson, SC, Features Invitational Clay Show

The ARTS Center in Clemson, SC, will present its inaugural 20x20 Invitational Clay Show, on view from Sept. 5 through Oct. 15, 2011. A reception will be held on Sept. 8, from 6:30-9pm.

20x20 Invitational Clay is a niche show and sale featuring 20 ceramic artists with – you guessed it – 20 works apiece. These artists are drawn from across the Carolinas. This is an exhibition in which we are expanding from our previous Apple Cider Mug Sale. We are excited to do this in order to introduce North Carolina and South Carolina ceramic art and artists to the growing number of The ARTS Center members and the South Carolina Upstate community at large.

On Oct. 14-15, 2011, join us for the extended 20x20 Show & Sale. The October event coincides with American Craft Week in celebration of handmade craft (

The ceramic artists will be exhibiting a range of works affording better variety in this large group showing. Sue Grier, show juror and volunteer consultant, explains “We are excited to present the 20x20 Invitational Clay Show. This event will be of interest to both the appreciator of fine handmade craft and the collector of ceramic work. The ceramic artists selected for the exhibition and show are leaders in their field. Many have taught workshops regionally, published articles and participated in regional/national shows and exhibitions. Several belong to the prestigious Southern Highland Craft Guild.”

Participating artists are: (from North Carolina) - Marcia Bugg, Linda Dalton, Elise Delfield, Claudia Dunaway, Ann Gleason, Ron Philbeck, Energy Xchange (Teresa Pietsch & Lisa Gluckin), Amy Sanders, Doc Welty & Julie Wiggins; (from South Carolina) - Rob Gentry, Amy Goldstein-Rice, Tuula Ihamaki-Widdifield, Jo Jeffers, Ernst Meyers, Paul Moore, Jay Owens, Marquerite Palmer, Chris Troy, and Mike Vatalaro.
