"The Museum is very excited to collaborate with the City's Art in Public Places on this fundraising event.  What a great opportunity to not only feature the works of a local artist, but also to showcase the strength of our arts and cultural community here in the Ocean Avenue area," said Amy Hever, Schoolhouse Executive Director. 

Debby Coles-Dobay, Director of Art in Public Places, adds "It is an honor to have a ceramicist of this level offer his artwork for sale to benefit our programs. This will be a once in a lifetime way to personally meet an elite ceramic artist and to purchase his artwork."

He will feature live demonstrations and stream informational ceramic making videos throughout the evening. A portion of the proceeds from the ceramic sales will benefit the City's Art in Public Places 2013 Kinetic Art Exhibition and the Museum's educational programming.
