Clay Art Center celebrated 62 years with its 12th Annual Hand in Hand Fall Benefit on October 17 at Willow Ridge Country Club in Harrison, NY. More than 175 guests enjoyed a tastings menu from local restaurants, signature cocktails and music from the Clay Arts Quintet, featuring Bernie Williams. Silent and live auctions included one-of-kind ceramic artwork from nationally recognized artists, with George Latimer, Westchester County executive as the celebrity auctioneer. Emily Peck, Clay Art Center’s new Executive Director was overwhelmed with the generosity of donors, who raised a near-record $118,000 to help keep the Center’s vital programs strong. “I am excited and honored to be joining Clay Art Center as its new executive director, and to furthering the pursuit of making the power of creativity accessible to all,” says Peck. Clay Art Center’s mission is to offer a stimulating space for studio practice, exhibition and educational opportunities to better serve the community.
