The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition recognizing the distinguished artists who contribute to the Greenwich House Pottery community. This exhibition showcases the artistic range of GHP’s makers, each of whom uses the Pottery’s extensive resources to express their own creative voice in clay. This year’s exhibition will be particularly unique, as it brings together work made by our community during a full year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Work in this exhibition was made at kitchen counters and living rooms, as well as the GHP studios, while our clay community navigated this difficult, socially-distanced year virtually and in-person.
GHP is the oldest non-profit in the country dedicated to the inquiry and advancement of the ceramic arts. Key to the development of technical skills and innovation, GHP provides an all-encompassing educational program for over 1260 students in a typical year. Artists and students learn from professional faculty and staff proficient in a range of topics from wheel throwing, hand-building and mold-making to glaze chemistry and slip casting. GHP also hosts workshops and lectures by leading ceramic artists from around the country as well as offering teens and children the opportunity to work in clay through Greenwich House’s Afterschool Program. The artists in this exhibition represent the continuous achievement, exploration and passion for ceramic arts that GHP has fostered for over 117 years.
