Greenwich House's first art exhibition including ceramics was held in May 1905. The "gallery" was a humble room within the House's original building on Jones Street, just about 75 feet from the Jane Hartsook Gallery's present location. The exhibition was organized to show the community what activities the neighborhood youngsters had been up to. Over the years, Greenwich House Pottery developed into an important center for American ceramics arts - a hub for amateur and professional artists alike. Now, over a hundred years after that first exhibition, the Pottery has maintained its tradition of showcasing ceramics for all the community to see. Today's Greenwich House Pottery is drastically different from these early endeavors, though part of that culture and certainly the spirit of exhibition still remain. 

The Jane Hartsook Gallery seeks to broaden the knowledge of the ceramics sphere in our community, the field, and the artworld with an emphasis on promoting emerging and underrepresented artists. The Ceramics Now series is an important aspect of that mission. The goal of this annual exhibition series is to think about what is happening in ceramics now, and the work of the artists selected is seen as a catalyst to that answer. CERAMICS NOW is the accompanying catalog. Copies are available online for educational purposes, or for purchase via the link below.
