(July 30-Aug. 26) Clayplay

The folks at Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton are all about contemporary clay sculpture these days, and who can blame them? You can't help but fall in love with the form when 380 sculptors from across the country submit their best work for your annual Ceramics Exhibition. Workhouse employed the services of a ceramics expert to choose the best of the bunch. Sculptures that embody a contemporary spirit as well as technical mastery are showing through late August.
