Archie Bray Foundation provides free access to some of the
finest ceramic art found anywhere in the nation. The North
Gallery, open year-round, houses a rotating exhibition space and the Sales Gallery, where you can buy work by current and past resident
artists. During the summer the Bray's 3,500-square foot Warehouse
Gallery, a converted brickyard building, features an exhibition
of work by current resident artists and our Annual Resident Benefit Auction.
Solo exhibitions by departing
resident artists take place at different times during the
year, and additional Bray exhibitions are held at galleries
throughout the country.
The Bray grounds contain hundreds
of ceramic artifacts and site-specific sculptures created by
former resident artists. Visitors are invited to explore the
grounds, and self-guided walking tours can be taken anytime
during daylight hours. Special group tours can be arranged
through the Bray office.
The permanent ceramics collection
contains more than 1,000 pieces and continues to grow. It includes
work of past residents as well as several historical pieces,
including work by world-renowned artists Bernard Leach, Shoji
Hamada, Peter Voulkos, Rudy Autio, Ken Ferguson and David Shaner.
A rotating selection can be viewed in the Pottery Gallery.
