Esteemed Patrons and Contributing Artists,

We sincerely regret informing you that Black Bean Ceramic Art Center will be closing permanently on July 18, 2017.

Black Bean Ceramic Art Center has been a unique and independent studio and gallery since 2009. We are extremely proud of all that we have accomplished in these eight years and could not be more thankful to those who believed in our idea of “creative independence.”

Due to a report from the Water Board of TCE listing possible safety issues, we have decided to close our doors.

It has been a pleasure and a delight having this endearing bond with fellow artists and art devotees. We look forward to future associations with you. Please keep us informed of your current and future endeavors. May our creative paths cross again.

With compassion and appreciation,
Ruben Reyes & Will Johnson
