“Throw Down” with Weber Gallery as it celebrates “Breaking the Mold,” the 10-year anniversary of Louisville Clay on Oct. 19.
Key to the celebration, however, is raising $4,750 required to help put on and market the pottery show, which will feature more than 100 artists with developmental disabilities.
According to Weber’s Power 2 Give fundraiser page, 35 percent of that goal has been met, but there’s only one month left to meet it.
“Join us as we support the workshops and partnerships of the Louisville Clay professional artists and artists with disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome,” the page says. “This will be a rare opportunity to see every style, size and function of this beautiful medium from artists who are as wildly diverse as the art itself!”
The Oct. 19 opening reception to kick off the two month-long runs from 5:30-9 p.m. at Weber Gallery is free to the public. It will feature the actual artists, live music, snacks and beverages. The exhibition and sale, which run through the end of the year, allows artists to receive a 60 percent commission; Weber Gallery’s 40 percent proceeds go directly toward support of people with developmental disabilities.
Weber Gallery is a program of the Council on Developmental Disabilities, a 60 year-old Louisville organization. Visit the fundraiser page to donate.
