Aileen Osborn Webb, founder of the American Craft Council was born in the Hudson Valley. A family relation of Anne Osborn, the President of Clearwater’s executive committee, Mrs. Webb recognized the significant impact of craft on individuals and communities, and established a nonprofit to preserve, cultivate, and celebrate this communal heritage. In keeping with this spirit, the Peekskill Clay Studios in partnership with Clearwater, hopes to further this vision. American Craft Week runs from October 1-16 this year. Peekskill Clay Studios has been a dedicated participant for the past 5 years. Rivers and Tides: Ceramics along the Hudson will be on view throughout the month of October.
