17th annual Bray Benefit Auction and Brickyard Bash...goes Hawaiian
June 13–July 27, 2013
Brickyard Bash

Grab your grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts and head to the Bray for the 17th Annual Bray Benefit Auction and Brickyard Bash. Yep, you guessed it—this year we’re heating things up with a Hawaiian theme.

The 2013 Bray Benefit Auction—including cup, silent and live auctions—showcased work from more than 85 ceramic artists.


The Brickyard Bash began in 1984 to celebrate the purchase of the Bray family brickyard and to thank the community for its’ support. Under the direction of Kurt Weiser, the acquisition of 25 acres allowed for new studios, improvement to the clay business facilities, and according to Weiser, opportunities for the residents to “stretch out and do things they never did before”.

The annual Bray Benefit Auction is the Bray’s biggest fundraiser of the year and helps support the residency program. The Bray’s residency program supports artists by offering rent-free studios, subsidized material and firing costs, as well as direct funding through fellowships and stipends.
