18th Annual Clay Olympics: May 17

Posted: May 15, 2016

Buffalo State’s ceramics program is hosting its 18th annual Western New York Clay Olympics on Tuesday, May 17, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Ceramics Studio, Upton Hall 128.  

This year’s contest features approximately 30 students from four high schools—Kenmore East, Lancaster, Lewiston-Porter, and Pioneer—whose teachers are alumni of the ceramics and art education programs. The contestants will work individually and in teams to compete in timed events using clay and various clay-forming methods in an Olympic-style contest.

In conjunction with the contest, Buffalo State is hosting an exhibition of the participating students’ artwork in Upton Hall's Dr. Margaret Eschner Bacon Student Gallery. A juror will select the top artworks and the winning artists will receive cash awards made possible by the Sylvia L. Rosen Endowment at the Burchfield Penney Art Center.

The awards will be presented at 1:15 p.m. in the Bacon Galley. All the events are free and open to the public. For more information, call (716) 878-6032.
