On Location at The Bray
The Archie Bray Foundation (The Bray) provides free access to some of the finest ceramic art found anywhere in the nation.
The Bray Sales Gallery, open year-round, houses works for sale by current and past resident artists and the North Gallery, open seasonally, features rotating exhibitions. 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 Bray 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 the work of past resident artists 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.
