New Leadership, All Ohio Ceramic Invitational at Heights Arts


Heights Arts launches its fall season under the leadership of recently appointed executive director Rachel Bernstein. With a passion for the arts, Rachel brings her expertise as an arts administrator (and a professional cellist!) to our organization after a long tenure at the Music School Settlement.

Opening Friday, September 6, Heights Arts presents a landmark exhibition, the All Ohio Ceramic Invitational, organized by Tom Huck, curator of University Hospital’s art collection. The All Ohio Ceramic Invitational showcases ceramic works from artists in northern Ohio and throughout the state that explore the diversity of clay. Tom states:

Artists have been invited who’s works exhibit contrasts in scale, clay bodies, firing ranges, glazing techniques, and execution. The show will feature sculptural works, vessel inspired pieces, and functional works.

We are particularly excited to introduce a recognized group of artists from the outlying regions of the state and exhibit their work for the first time in the Cleveland area.

This exhibit not only highlights some of Ohio’s talented ceramists but also provides a perspective on ceramic art and its place in today’s contemporary art market.

In addition to six annual special exhibitions, Heights Arts presents year-round the works by many of northeast Ohio’s top artists including glass, ceramics and jewelry. Help us to support our region’s artists by giving gifts of art!
