CMC Aspen to host exhibit honoring history of Carbondale Clay Center
Colorado Mountain College ArtShare, the CMC Foundation and Obermeyer Wood Investment Counsel are presenting “Movers and Shakers: The Makings of Carbondale Clay Center,” an exhibit that showcases a variety of artwork in honor of the center’s 25-year history. The exhibit will open Feb. 24 at CMC Aspen.
Carbondale Clay Center is a nonprofit community arts center that offers clay classes for adults, kids and families, outreach programs with local organizations, ceramic studio space rentals, a long-term artist residency program, as well as ceramic gallery and retail spaces.
Alexandria Knipe, CMC Aspen assistant professor of art, noted the new exhibit is a creative way to celebrate those who were instrumental in the creation of the Carbondale Clay Center.
“The show is not limited to ceramics and much of the works comes from local artisans,” said Knipe. “It will really honor the people who are part of the center’s history.”
Carbondale Clay Center was started in 1997 and serves to explore the art of ceramics, from the casually curious to the established artist.
An opening reception for the new exhibit will be held from 4-7 p.m. on Feb. 24 at CMC Aspen at 255 Sage Way in the Aspen Business Center. Admission is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required. CMC health protocols will be in place. See CMC COVID information for updates.
“Movers and Shakers” will run through May 6 at the Aspen campus. For more information, contact the CMC Aspen front desk at 970-925-7740 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
