SCHUYLERVILLE — 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 renown 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. A Juror’s Choice Prize and a Director’s Choice Prize will be selected at a live dialogue and virtual tour with the Juror on March 25.  Details for the exhibition and workshop can be found at:
