Carbondale Clay Center NEWS

The Carbondale Clay Center has been an important part of the Roaring Fork Valley and the field of ceramics since the Center's inception in 1997. Over the last 15 years, the Clay Center has played a pivotal role in our local art scene by offering a positive and supportive place to build community through artistic expression and arts education. Generous community support has allowed us to successfully sponsor ceramic classes, kids clay camps, gallery exhibitions, artist residencies, outreach programming, special events, and community parties.

First Fridays

CCC Gallery hosts opening receptions & events on the First Friday of every month. We invite you to take a stroll to 135 Main Street while enjoying a night on the town. To receive a monthly e-newsletter of gallery & other events, email
