If you’re in NYC tonight, here’s a ceramics event that might interest you:
100 Years of Clay Centennial reception, showcasing some of the world’s most noted ceramic artists, in a celebration of the art, artists, New York City and Greenwich House Pottery as a NYC cultural institution. Plus, the installation of two new exhibits:
Who Lives in Greenwich Village, drawing inspiration from the Mannahatta Project, the installation depicts New York as it was ecologically in 1609, imposed on a block-by-block street grid of Greenwich Village today. The result is a temporal clash (or perhaps synthesis) that educates on ecosystems that still exist, and shows us what has been lost.
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.
The event will feature food, drinks, and jazz, and proceeds from the $25 admission go to Greenwich House Pottery.
16 Jones Street (btw. Bleeker and West 4th)
Thursday, September 10, 6-9pm
