Three High Schools Participating in 19th annual Clay Olympics

Posted: May 16, 2017

Buffalo State’s ceramics program is hosting the 19th annual Western New York Clay Olympics on Thursday, May 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Ceramics Studio, Upton Hall 128. 

Approximately 30 students are participating from three high schools—Kenmore East, Lewiston-Porter, and Pioneer—whose teachers are alumni of Buffalo State’s ceramics and art education programs. The contestants, working individually and in teams, will compete in timed events using clay and various clay-forming methods in an Olympic-style contest.

There also will be a ceramics exhibition of the participating students’ artwork in Upton Hall’s Margaret Bacon Gallery. A juror will select the top artworks. 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 gallery. All the events are free and open to the public. For more information, call (716) 878-6032.
