Good Morning is the first of our four themed exhibits for 2020, a year dedicated to all the elements that make a home, including everything from large families to those who fly solo. Everyone craves a feeling of home; a place where one feels comfortable, at peace and a feeling of belonging. Artists have been depicting an expression of home in their works for centuries. Good Morning will be a celebration of our best way to start the day. Coffee and Tea are all about comfort and coziness, and it brings people together! Clay Art Center artists and invited nationally recognized artists come together to create one of a kind, handmade coffee and tea inspired vessels. Come view and/or purchase a selection of tea cups, espresso cups and mugs for your favorite morning beverage, along with creamers, tea pots and more!

Welcome Home, is our year-long gallery focus for 2020 exploring all elements that make a home, through a series of four core exhibitions and related programming. The exhibits will examine the meaning of family, the daily routines, moments and items that surround us and add to our sense of home, and the interaction of the people within to create that place which develops our sense of identity. The exhibits include: Good Morning, The Garden by Anat Shiftan, A Taste of Home, and The Family Portrait.
