Giving Tuesday has become a reminder for all of us to support the causes we love and the institutions that are important to us.
Before we ask you to support The Brick Clay Studio and Gallery, let us tell you about the challenges and highlights of the past year:
In spite of the pandemic, our doors have been open since August of 2020. Our Board had to be very creative to adjust to the changing conditions and regulations. Concerned about Covid19, we had to limit the number of potters. Since we did not teach any classes until August 21, The Brick was open to experienced potters only. We had to sign up for specific time slots, wear masks at all times and clean the studio as if it were an OR. Despite all the restrictions, The Brick has been the “happy place” for all of us!
Our summer Clay Camp was a great success and The Brick was a part of three big local shows. Classes have resumed in September, albeit on a reduced scale, i.e. fewer and smaller classes. Still, this is a very big moment for us! It is very exciting to be able to offer classes again to new and to experienced students, to feel their excitement and to watch their work evolve. The shelves are once again bursting with objects of all kinds and the kilns are running.
Teaching classes is our main source of income, and this source has been dry for a whole year. Although our income stream is now back to a trickle, we have a considerable hole in our budget. Apart from the basic operating cost, our equipment needs to be renewed or updated, our wonderful interns need to be paid and our scholarship fund replenished.
The Brick Clay Studio and Gallery is a 501(c)(3)non-profit art collective organization. Our goal is to establish a cooperative art education center and gallery dedicated to providing space for potters to work and share ideas.
If you value The Brick’s artists and their contribution to our community, we ask you to consider making a tax-deductible donation at this time.
We thank you for your support and hope to see you in our Gallery Shop during the Holiday season.
With kind regards,
The Brick Clay Studio and Gallery
