In July, WSW welcomed Ruth McKinney-Burket to our crew. Ruth will take the reigns from manager emeritus Mary Beth Wehrung to direct our ceramics programming. We we’re lucky to have Mary Beth head up the clay department for so long and we’re thrilled she will remain on hand around our studios as a clay instructor.
So who is this new gal? Ruth recently graduated with her MFA in ceramics from SUNY New Paltz. Her own art work explores the role that art can play in community building and inspiring change so she should fit in perfectly around WSW! We know she looks forward to seeing our clay program make new connections and grow. You can see more of Ruth’s work at rivervalleyartisan.com
Fall ceramic classes will be revving up mid-September and there will be some of the usual as well as some new offerings. Visit our website for full details, or call us to register! 845.658.9133
