Recently the Duncan McClellan gallery was featured in an article on Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, highlighting the amazing creative efforts and expansions happening around the neighborhood. The St. Pete warehouse district has new life and culture happening through the acquisition of abandoned warehouses, repurposed for arts, entertainment and community engagement.
Just a few blocks from us, the Morean Center for Clay set up a home in the preserved Historic Seaboard Train Station providing educational and professional programs of all kinds. From their classes ranging in experience level to the artist in residence program, this gallery has become a sort of “mecca” for ceramics. During your stop at Morean, don’t forget to grab a bite of handmade sandwiches and soups from CA Cafe, the in-house restaurant.
The DM School Project was given some love by CL Tampa Bay too, highlighting the educational efforts Duncan kickstarted with the program.
“McClellan realized that educating students about glass-making would be a boon to the area and initiated a program, the DMG School Project, through which thousands of students visit the hot shop and learn the process of glass-blowing. Additionally, he developed a mobile hot shop to visit schools where transportation was unavailable.”
