2017 booth #.

Uptown Clay is a collaborative of 15 ceramic artists working in clay on Harriet Ave. just off the Midtown Greenway. We represent a gamut of ages, genders, and viewpoints with the shared objective of creating work in the ceramic medium. Most of us create functional ceramics, using a variety of techniques to arrive at a finished product. All of us are part time artists, who live and work in the urban neighborhood. Our work is sold selectively at a handful of shows.

For the Loring Park Art Festival we would like to feature the work of three artists; Jon Loer, Sheryl Grassie and Catherine Viegal. Catherine and Sheryl create stoneware ceramics on the pottery wheel, while Jon’s work is primarily hand built or cast ceramics. Each of these artists has been practicing their craft for over 20 years and have not sold at the Loring Park Art Festival before. Our price points range from $5.00- $60.00. Our modestly priced work is meant to be used and enjoyed by people in their daily lives.
