Art in Our Gardens

 2020 brings new exciting opportunities for artists interpreting, expressing and sharing
the beauty of Ladew.

A collective of Baltimore Clayworks resident artists will draw inspiration throughout all seasons of the year at Ladew culminating in a dynamic group fall art show.

Baltimore Clayworks is a ceramic arts center, located in Baltimore City, that brings the world of ceramics to our city and surrounding region through outstanding artistic, educational and collaborative programming. Understanding that art nourishes the human spirit and brings us together, the artists work in the Baltimore Clayworks studios, galleries, classes, and communities to nurture and welcome a diverse community of professional and emerging artists, seasoned potters, and the new learner.

Out of an abundance of concern for the well-being of our guests and community, and in keeping with the CDC’s guidance to practice social distancing, we are canceling The Spring Workshop.
