NEW YORK – 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. From functional ceramics to sculpture, this exhibition is as diverse as the artists themselves.
        
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 annually. Artists and students learn from professional faculty and staff proficient in a range of topics from wheel throwing, hand-building and paper clay 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 110 years.

ABOUT GREENWICH HOUSE POTTERY

Greenwich House Pottery is a ceramics center that has been supporting artists and promoting the field of ceramics for over 110 years. Starting with clay modeling classes in the earliest days of Greenwich House as part of its Handicraft School, the Pottery flourished with the help of the community and philanthropic support from patrons like Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. GHP remains a stalwart of innovation and art.

GHP is dedicated to expanding public awareness of the diversity and complexity of ceramics and fostering the development of artists through internships, residencies, exhibitions and classes. Extending our educational mission of making, exhibiting, and learning from contemporary ceramics, GHP operates Ceramics Now, an exhibition series in the Jane Hartsook Gallery committed to supporting emerging, underrepresented and established ceramists.
    
GHP strives to increase public recognition of the importance of creative engagement with art. Like so many nonprofit arts organizations, GHP plays a vital role in community building and providing access to the arts. Centers like GHP have become rare but are regaining popularity as society rediscovers the amazement in creating art by engaging physically with materials. GHP offers a chance to learn from clay in a direct way and to foster connections between artists, material and the larger ceramics community.
