Classes during covid
The Art School at Old Church modified the learning model after the outbreak of Covid-19. The school closed but classes kept going, remotely. Today the school has limited capacity in all classrooms and many online classes.
This exhibition represents work that has been done while students attended classes from home or in small groups in the school’s studios. The gallery can be visited but you must make reservations to secure a time slot.
Most of the artwork is for sale. If you are interested in purchasing any of the work, please call the school at 201-767-7160, or call me directly at 201-913-3869.
Monday–Friday: 9:00 AM–5:00 PM and 7:00 PM–10:00 PM
Saturday: 10:00 AM–3:00 PM
In the event of inclement weather, please call (201) 767-7160 to confirm hours.
The galleries are handicap accessible.
Upcoming Annual Exhibits/Events
The Old Church Pottery Show
The Old Church Pottery Show and Sale began in 1975 as a fundraiser for the Art School at Old Church. Long-time friends Karen Karnes and Mikhail Zakin, Art School founder, wanted to bring together their vibrant community of potters with the local community to offer an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind works of art while supporting the newly-established cultural resource. The show has grown to include up to 30 national and international artists each year, and offers more than 2,000 pots for sale over its three-day span, including functional mugs, dishware and servers, as well as sculptural works. Participating potters are invited to the show based on recommendations by their peers.
Our 47th Annual Pottery Show & Sale will take place December 3–5, 2021 - stay tuned! Visit oldchurchpotteryshow.org for more information on our recent 46th Annual virtual show - participating artists, curators, and the show's history. All proceeds benefit the school.
Salon 561 is an annual salon-style exhibition of artwork created by the members of the Art School's faculty. It is a unique opportunity for individuals to see what professional artists in the Art School community work on outside the classroom.
FROM THE STUDIO CLASSES...
From The Studio Classes is an annual salon-style exhibition of artworks by the Art School students. This highly anticipated exhibition fills the galleries to capacity with a vibrant installation of over 200 works of art, shown in the school's Mikhail Zakin and Café galleries.
