Artists Reception THIS Friday, August 27, 5 - 8 p.m. at sUgAR

Please join us in celebrating the ceramic work produced by eleven local teens in the exhibition Leaving a mark: en el barro/Dejando la marca: in clay. A collaborative workshop led by Crystal Bridges Museum  of American Art, the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County and the University of Arkansas Department of Art has enabled these teens to make their mark while responding to the centuries-old ceramics and contemporary ollas featured in Transforming Tradition: The Pottery of  Mata Ortíz, currently on display at Crystal Bridges at the Massey.

The finished art works will be on display August 6th-September 18th,  2010 at sUgAR Gallery, located at 114 W. Central Avenue just off the Bentonville Square. Mark your calendar now for the Artists Reception  on Friday, August 27, 5 – 8 p.m.

Our thanks to the Bentonville Convention and Visitors Bureau and Table  Mesa restaurant for co-sponsoring the exhibition. Additional thanks to Acambaro Restaurant, El Pueblo Market #2 and Pupuseria Salvadorena #2.  Transforming Tradition: The Pottery of Mata Ortíz organized by The Field Museum in Chicago.
