The 2019 Proletariat Platter Exhibition Invitation:
Rat City Studios is facilitating an exhibition at Proletariat Pizza in October of 2019. Current and past students of 9-week classes, assistants and guest artists, and friends please join us in this fun event by adding your wall-ready Platters and Plates to the showcase. We want to display the diversity of work happening in the area and the people working (or who have worked) here at RCS. This exhibition will take place the whole months of October and November coinciding with National Clay Week! We did this a few years back and hung nearly 100 plates and platters on the walls.
Any type of Plate or Platter is welcome as long as it is ready to hang safely on the wall.
Please no pieces over Twenty-five Pounds.
Email participation confirmation for the exhibition by September 1st.
If your email confirmation sooner we will highlight you on the RCS Instagram!
