NYC Clay People, Clear your Calenders


If you are in NYC tonight, the you must make your way over to Greenwich House Pottery. 
Tonight is the start of their 100th anniversary celebration and there is something tres tool to see. Super friends of Slipcast Andy Brayman and Ayumi Horie have put together a collaborative installation. "Who Lives in Greenwich Village--It draws inspiration from the Manahatta Project (http://themannahattaproject.org/).  The artists superimposed images of native plants and animals on the Greenwich Village street grid, and each block is its own little segment.As you can see from the images it looks fantastic. 

Ayumi and Andy also made these awesome platters too . 

There is also another show,  New Amsterdam at 400: A Celebration of Dutch Ceramics, celebrating the fourth century mark of Dutch ceramic influence on New York City. As the Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam was established in September 1609, this exhibition uniquely connects Greenwich House Pottery's own anniversary with the cultural heritage of Dutch settlement in New York City.

It can all be seen at 16 Jones St between Bleecker and West 4th. 

Be there. There is an artist's talk at 5:30 and the big event is at 6 Wine, hors d'oeuvres and jazz, $25 admission which  goes to the Pottery.
