PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Port Chester's Clay Art Center (CAC)will open TeaTime, a national invitational exhibit featuring sculptural teapots, on Saturday, Feb. 1. 

The opening reception for the show is set to run from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit, which is set to run through Apr. 1, features functional and sculptural teapots by invited artists and an exploration of tea and its relevance in a global culture, representatives said. The exhibit, curated by Caitlin Applegate and Leigh Taylor Mickelson, will "highlight the teapot and its ceremonies which are found worldwide," representatives said.

CAC will host several programs to enrich the exhibition, including workshops, historical lectures, a panel discussion and several educational programs. The Shop at CAC will feature handmade works by CAC Artists and invited guest artists.

South Carolina artist Jim Connell will present a one-day workshop entitled “The Teapot,” on Saturday, Feb. 8. Keiko Ashida will present a four-week workshop in February in which students will be immersed in the Japanese tea ceremony. On Valentine’s Day, the Clay Art Center will host date night for couples to make their own “tea for two” tea cups on the potters’ wheel and have their personal tea leaves read by a local tea leaf reader.

To learn more about the exhibit and the programs, residents are asked to visit the Clay Art Center website.
