Judith Weber has been appointed president of the Port Chester-based Clay Art Center (CAC) by its board of directors. A Mamaroneck resident who has spent her entire professional career working as a ceramic artist, teacher, designer and an ardent champion for the arts, Weber has been on the CAC board since 2009 and replaces Robert Rattet, who served as board president for six years. The board also appointed gallerist and curator Leslie Ferrin to its advisory council.
“I am honored to have been elected to be the new president of the board of directors at Clay Art Center. As a ceramic artist, I know firsthand the transformative qualities of clay and the work that the center does bringing this wonderful experience to the community, students and working artists. I am proud to be part of that process and have the opportunity to work with so many wonderfully creative and dedicated people,” said Weber
Weber has been a ceramic artist for more than 50 years. Motivated by the relationship between form and function she has spent most of her professional life designing limited-edition dining accessories. Her work has been featured in national magazines and is represented at museum shops throughout the United States.
