SCHUYLERVILLE — Saratoga Clay Arts Center’s Schacht Gallery presents Reversal: RED a solo exhibition featuring sculptural and functional works by Mark Tarabula, SCAC’s 2020-21 Artist-in-Residence, which explore conditions of the human body, concepts of sexuality, and the connection between surface and form. 

The exhibition, which reflects the culmination of his year-long residency, opens Saturday, June 19 with a reception from 5-7 p.m. and runs through July 17. Details for the exhibition can be found online at 

Saratoga Clay Arts Center’s Artist residency program offers emerging artists who have just received their BFA or MFA the time and space to develop their artistic voice in clay. While enhancing their knowledge and experience in a working studio environment, residents are expected to work to develop a strong and cohesive body of work, have a visible presence in the studio and interact with members of the clay community and the public. Each September, fresh talent enters the community and offers them their unique perspectives in clay while they learn the inner workings of running an arts business.

Mark Tarabula is currently an Artist in Residence at Saratoga Clay Arts Center in New York and will be staying on for a second year. He received his MFA in Ceramics at Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA and his BFA in Ceramics from Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI. During the years in between degrees, he was a resident artist in several places including The Ceramic Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Gallery-One in Ellensburg, Washington and with Justin Rothshank in Goshen, Indiana. Mark has shown work all over the country. 

Founded in 2010 by clay artist and educator Jill Kovachick, Saratoga Clay Arts Center is a ceramic art center located just a few miles outside of Saratoga Springs in Schuylerville, offering wheel throwing and handbuilding clay classes for youth and adults, studio space and residencies for artists, and exhibitions featuring emerging, mid-career and established clay artists. The Schacht Gallery is open Mon - Sat from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and by appointment.  Located at 167 Hayes Road, Schuylerville.
