Some of the Hudson Valley’s top clay artist/teachers are featured in a new exhibit at Peekskill Clay Studios — neatly coinciding with “Teacher Appreciation Month.” Teaching Artists will be on display from May 14 to 29, 2001. The exhibit is dedicated to those who are themselves dedicated educators as well as artists.
The exhibition will showcase a dynamic range of talent and artistry: From Dina Bursztyn’s sculptural work which the New York Times called “Sensual, lonesome” and “enchanting and playful” to Brooke Evans’ organic, graceful yet meticulously constructed functional pottery. Other exhibiting artists include Judy Sigunick, Deborah Lecce, Roger Bauman, Ada Cruz, Jessica Dubin, Lisa Knaus, Jane Arnold, Anat Shiftan and Tania Kravath.
A weekend opening will be held on May 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. followed by regular Gallery opening hours: Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and weekdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Gallery is located at The Hat Factory, 1000 North Division Street, in Peekskill.
