SCHUYLERVILLE — Saratoga Clay Arts Center presents SAY SOMETHING: Tactile Voices in Clay, a national juried exhibition of 60 functional and decorative works by 48 clay artists.  The exhibition opens on Saturday, April 30 online and in person, with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m., and runs through June 11.

Juried by prominent Philadelphia potter and artist, Kevin Snipes. A Juror’s Choice Prize and a Director’s Choice Prize will be revealed at the opening. 

“This exhibition attempts to showcase ceramics works that have a strong sense of personal voice. What is voice? And how do we bring it to a work of ceramics? Voice is the elusive thing that makes a work of art feel believable,” said Kevin Snipes, in a statement.
