We invite artists and entrepreneurs to offer decorative and utilitarian ceramics and other clay-related items for sale at CLAYFest Market. CLAY is excited to expand the scope of the market and invite gem and mineral vendors to apply to sell their wares in keeping with this year's theme exploring geology and mining. The application for the market can be found by clicking here.
Other geology and mining events at this year's CLAY Festival include:
- Central Mining District Bus Tour led by Terry Humble
- Walking through Mining History on Boston Hill led by Andrew Lindlof
- Lecture by Senior Economic Geologist with the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources Virginia McLemore, Ph.D: The Geology and Mining History of Mining Districts in Grant County, New Mexico
- Reception for The Disappearing Mining Landscape of Grant County exhibition at the Silver City Museum featuring photographs by Ann McMahon and Andrew Lindlof's collection of rocks and minerals from three of the nineteen mining districts in Grant County
In addition to geology and mining, this year’s festival will explore clay art, archaeology, petroglyphs, and farm-to-table foods and land use. Stay tuned for more information on each!
