Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts
- Art Galleries
The Archie Bray Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment of the ceramic arts. The Bray offers artist residencies and workshops to potters and ceramic sculptors from all over the world, as well as ceramics classes for adults and children throughout the year. Founded in 1951, the Bray is located on the grounds of the former Western Clay Manufacturing Company just west of Helena on Country Club Avenue. Also on site is the Bray Clay Business, selling ceramic materials, equipment and supplies. An annual exhibition of the current resident artist's work is on display during the summer from mid June to mid July. Throughout the year the Bray Sales Gallery is open daily, 10am-5pm Monday through Saturday, and 1-5pm on Sunday. A self-guided walking tour of the 26-acre site is available anytime during daylight hours. Guided tours for larger groups are available by appointment.
