The artists of the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery are busy turning out 200 uniquely decorated mugs for a fund-raiser sponsored by South Shores Tavern.  The fundraiser called at “Mug-A-Thon” at South Shores will enable Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery to survive its transition to a new location.  The fundraiser will be held on Friday, March 8 and Saturday March 9 from 7PM until closing.

200 mugs are being created for the Mug-A-Thon.  With a tax-deductible donation of $30 you receive a mug, a fill-up of beer at South Shores and wine at the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery and two evenings of wonderful music. Friday night features Blues Dragon and Saturday night features Max DuBose and the M-Plants to the stage.  Featured also are Suzanne Canon and PinkSlip.  The South Shores outstanding Chef will be serving wonderful and affordable foods throughout the fund-raiser.
 
Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery, a four year fixture in the Downtown Lake Worth Arts District, will be leaving the building they have occupied for all of those years.  The generosity of Jay Bernhardt allowed the gallery to function rent free for a while.  With a change of management and a monthly escalating rental cost, the non-profit artist cooperative found itself paying three times in rent over its monthly income.  Summertime air conditioning costs compounded the problem.  A concerted effort was made to find a new home in Lake Worth.  The building of the Lake Worth Arts District through the efforts of LULA, the Lake Worth CRA and Tracey Coffey were key to this decision.  A new home has been found at 15 South J Street and the gallery will be moving in by April 1.
 
“The artists of Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery are deeply indebted to Karine Albano of South Shores Tavern for holding this fundraiser for us,” said gallery member Betty Wilson, also of the Dixie Art Loft and the Craft Gallery.  “This help allows us to meet our obligations, survive and thrive. We have raised money for so many other causes through the gallery, we are grateful that the community is coming together to help us when we need it the most.”
 
Clay§Glass§Metal§Stone Cooperative Gallery is sponsored by the Flamingo Clay Studio, a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to provide affordable studio and gallery space for three-dimensional artists.  The gallery is currently located at 605 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.
It will be moving to 15 South J Street in April.  Hours are Sunday thru Tuesday, 9AM-1PM. Wednesday thru Saturday, 9AM-9PM.   Gallery openings are the first and third Friday of each month from 6-9 PM with many special events in-between.  For information call Joyce Brown-215-205-9441 orJCLay6@aol.com.  Gallery phone: 561-588-8344.
