Community-Wide Celebration of Ceramic Arts on October 25th

The best way to experience Clay Fest is to board a free trolley that will depart from the Braemar Road parking lot at New Rochelle High School at 12:30. The trolley will stop at eight venues presenting exhibits of international and local ceramic arts, family workshops, walking tours, artist demonstrations, and live musical performances by the acclaimed Burnt Earth Ensemble. The trolley will make a continuous loop through all New Rochelle Clay Fest sites until 5:00pm.
The participating venues in New Rochelle are: 3rd Rail Studio, Backstreet Gallery, Brother Kenneth Chapman Gallery at Iona College, Castle Gallery at the College of New Rochelle, Media Loft, Museum of Arts & Culture at New Rochelle High School, New Rochelle Public Library, and (nearby) the Pelham Art Center.
For anyone interested in the arts, this is truly a unique event, with exceptionally broad community participation, not to be missed. It is also a great way to get to know the various cultural venues here in our community.
