Salon Sundays are monthly gatherings at the Lab for anyone interested in creativity and conversation. Topics will vary and no experience is needed. The gatherings are free and open to all. Join us!

January 26: Clay on the Bay

Sculptor and Lab co-founder, Elizabeth Kendall will give a brief introduction to the plans for the Lab clay studio, share some images and talk about different ceramic forms and glaze surfaces, and lead a fun hands-on tile decoration activity.

Those present will also be invited to share what they would like to see the Lab offer, in the way of different ceramic classes or presentations for example, or topics or classes in any other artistic media that they are interested in.


Participants will also have an opportunity to tour the Lab space, visit with the resident artists and engage with them about their work and creativity in general. As an added bonus, guests will also be able to catch the show “12 by 12 in Twelve” a Members’ and Guests’ Art Show and Sale of two dimensional works that are no larger than 12” by 12”. Works in other media are also on an intimate scale.
