Clay Art Center Welcomes
Their 2022-23 Artists-in-Residence

For over 60 years, artists have been advancing their careers at Clay Art Center. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Clay Art Center’s nationally recognized artist-in-residence program. Their Residency program, which commences each year in September, is uniquely designed for emerging artists who need time and space to develop their voices. 


Since its inception in 1998, over 50 young emerging artists have called Clay Art Center “home”. Many of their past residents have gone on to careers in the ceramics field as artists and educators, and many continue their relationship with Clay Art Center through exhibition, shop and educational opportunities.


They are excited to welcome their 25th residency class: Avery Wells (Rittenberg Artist-in-Residence), Jon Green, Anny Chen (Returning Artist-in-Residence) and Jess Levin (Westchester Community Fellow). The residents work throughout the year on solo exhibitions which will be presented in the Clay Art Center gallery and online from June 22 through August 4, 2023. They will be teaching classes this year and will be a great addition to the Clay Art Center community!


Clay Art Center is a nationally recognized non-profit center for the advancement and practice of ceramic arts offering exhibitions, clay classes for adults and children, studio spaces for clay artists and outreach programs in the community.  It is in the heart of Port Chester at 40 Beech Street, Port Chester.
