Chris Antemann in the 2023 Bray Benefit

Bray Benefit ONLINE Auction

July 14 – July 21

Chris Antemann’s work “Kissing Flora”, straight from the artist’s studio, will be part of the yearly fundraiser for The Archie Bray, in Helena MT.

Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts (The Bray) was founded at the foothills of the Montana Rockies in 1951 by entrepreneur, brickmaker, and avid arts patron Archie Bray, who intended it to be a place to “make available for all who are seriously interested in the ceramic arts, a fine place to work.” The primary mission is to provide an environment and connection with other serious artists that stimulates creative work in ceramics.

Located on the site of the former Western Clay Manufacturing Company, the 26-acre historic brickyard campus has more than 17 buildings, including a 12,000-square-foot resident artist studio facility, a new education and research facility, multiple sales and exhibition galleries, renovated administrative offices, and a facility for ceramic retail and manufacturing. The property is open to artists, students, gallery visitors, and ceramic supply customers, as well as the general public for classesgallery visits, retail activity, self-guided tours, and structured group visits.
