Shrinking arts budgets? Tell that to The Clay Arts Center; it has been so successful that it’s actually managed to expand. It’s added 650 big, bright, and brand-new square feet to its gallery’s formerly 250-square-foot space—all the better to bring in nationally recognized ceramic artists for its exhibitions. The old gallery space transformed into the Pottery Shop, so visitors can take home functional and decorative pieces from local and national artists. Fans of ceramics needn’t look any further.
