Claire Durham. “Cohesive Creativity: The 1st Annual Au Sable River Valley Studio Tour + 2nd Annual Jay Invitational of Clay,” The Lake Champlain Weekly, July 15, 2016 (PDF)

Norte Maar returns to its summer home in the Adirondacks presenting the 2nd annual Jay Invitational of Clay: an exhibition featuring a local and regional selection of works in clay curated by Jackie Sabourin with Jason Andrew. The exhibition will open to the public on Friday, July 18 from 5-9pm on the grounds of the Jay House, Norte Maar’s summer residence in the Adirondacks. This event coincides with the 1st Annual Au Sable River Valley Studio Tour, July 18-19.

Originally founded on the shores of Lake Champlain in the summer of 2004 by curator Jason Andrew and choreographer Julia K. Gleich, Norte Maar for Collaborative Projects in the Arts played a major role in revitalizing the arts in Upstate New York. Through exhibitions at the farmhouse in Rouses Point and ballet performances in the ice rink at the Civic Center, Norte Maar became a signature advocate and presenter of the visual, literary, and performing arts in the North Country from 2004-2010. Since then the organization as been a leading force in the artistic community of Brooklyn.

The 2nd Annual Jay Invitational of Clay will feature an extraordinary selection of works in clay from the functional to the fanciful by local, regional, and internationally recognized artists curated by the renowned North Country ceramicist and arts patron Jackie Sabourin with the assistant of Norte Maar’s Director, Jason Andrew.
