Join us for the opening reception of three new exhibitions at Artspace:

Paying Homage: Soil & Site is an exhibition of the work from Artspace’s 2018 Summer Apprenticeship Program with Lead Artist Roberto Lugo, in partnership with Vital New Voices.

Ball Snake Ball presents objects and installations by a group of emerging and mid-career artists, based in cities and small towns across the U.S., who use clay to confront issues of environmental justice specific to their communities. Featured artists include: Morel Doucet, Rachel Eng, Shannon Goff, Natalie Kuenzi, Roberto Lugo, and Ruben Olguin.

Hand Dug CT: Ceramicists in the industrial flow presents sculptures and vessels created by a group of Connecticut-based ceramicists and potters who experiment with the harvesting of native clays and minerals. Artists include: Hayne Bayless, Jeff Kalin, Marcy LaBella, Ryan Paxton, and Mark Potter.

There will be an artist talk for Hand Dug CT: Ceramicists in the industrial flow and Ball Snake Ball at 6pm.

Our friends at Pots On Wheels will be parked in front of Artspace during the opening reception! Join us for a free pottery lesson, families are invited to come enjoy a fun hands-on evening of art and creation.
