Saratoga Clay Arts Center 2nd Annual National Juried Exhibition
Saratoga Clay Arts Center presents PLAYING WITH FIRE: Altered Atmospheres, a national juried exhibition of 68 functional and decorative works by 59 clay artists who play with fire. Juried by renowned Massachusetts-based potter, Mark Shapiro, the selected works have been plucked from altered atmospheres – those changed by wood, smoke, salt, or the like. The exhibition opens on Saturday, March 13 online and in person, with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m., and runs through April 24, 2021.
On March 16 from 11 a.m. – Noon, get the inside scoop on our very own Jewish Federation of NENY: What is it, what does it do, how does it do it? We are joined by Rob Kovach, President and CEO of Jewish Federation of Northeastern NY and by Phyllis Wang, Campaign Chair and Chair Elect of the Federation. They will discuss how Federation tackles and meets its goals of meeting the breadth of needs for the whole Jewish community. Fundraising, of course, but Federation is really an essential umbrella organization.

Virtual Horse Symposium
Sustainable Saratoga invites you to join in a discussion at 6:30 p.m. on March 18 of the true costs of clothing and goods that we buy. Jennifer Coulombe, sustainability consultant and lecturer at Skidmore College, will lead a discussion of the toll the fashion industry takes on garment makers and the environment. Fast fashion is the idea of quickly producing fashion trends and mass-producing them at low cost, accounting for $35.8 billion in sales in 2019. Through the lens of the True Cost documentary, which exposes key issues within the garment industry, to its after-effects on river and soil pollution, we will explore and discuss the various issues with fast fashion. We will also explore a brief history of fast fashion and various approaches to consider so we can be more conscious consumers. Attendees are encouraged to watch the documentary True Cost in advance of the webinar, but all are welcome. You can view the documentary on tubi, YouTube (youtu.be/nxhCpLzreCw), Amazon Prime, or at truecostmovie.com. Register in advance for this discussion.
