Award Winning Renowned Summit Artist Marguerite Brennan to Exhibit Clay Art Designs at the Millburn April 22nd and Summit April 29th Street Fairs and Craft Shows


Marguerite Brennan owner of MB Clay Art of Summit, NJ is scheduled to exhibit  exquisitely hand built works of art at the April 22 Millburn-Short Hills and April 29th Summit Street Fair and Craft Shows which  is anticipating to draw record numbers spanning over several NJ towns.

Marguerite Brennen is highly passionate about clay art and wants to share this passion with the greater Summit and Millburn communities. Brennan has exhibited extensively in the U.S. and Canada and has won numerous ceramic awards.  Her work is in the private collections of Nicolas Cage, Bette Midler, Lorraine Bracco, Francis F Coppola, Aidan Quinn and David Strathairn.
As well as preparing for the upcoming street fairs, Brennan is also fully gearing up for Summer Clay Art Camp Classes which she offers to children, and youths starting from ages six through seventeen in her local Summit studio.  Animal life and viewing them in their interactions with one another provides a huge source of inspiration for art projects. The unfiltered images seen with animals and nature tell the story, so children and young adult students gain much pleasure from interpreting these specific messages through their art. Brennan enthusiastically states, “Teaching students is an extremely rewarding experience because the skills my students learn with me truly builds an inner confidence as they create a masterpiece inspired by their own imagination”.  
Brennan’s both functional and sculptural works encompass arenas of design distinguished by her trademark of naïve animal imagery.  She strives to inspire her students to reach in themselves and find the spark of imagination that fuels the drive for individualized accomplishment. Brennan states, “I have seen children who struggle in the school environment thrive in my art classes because it enables them to find their center and their self confidence starts to shine. Teaching is very rewarding because it helps the child tap into their creative flow and their enthusiasm feeds mine.”   
The Millburn Street Fair will be held on Sunday, April 22nd, from 11am-5pm and The Summit Street Fair will be held on Sunday, April 29th from 11am-5pm. To inquire about MB Clay Art Summer Camp, please contact Marguerite Brennan @clayartbrennan@gmail.com or at 908-522-0643.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
