Carey Lowell is an actress, model and ceramicist best known for her role as Assistant District Attorney Jamie Ross on Law and Order. Introduced to clay in high school, she has been exploring the medium ever since. She currently studies at Greenwich House Pottery where her work has been shown at the Jane Hartsook Gallery.

David Amram is an American composer, conductor, multi-instrumentalist and author. As a classical composer and performer, his integration of jazz, folkloric and world music has led him to work with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Willie Nelson, Langston Hughes and Jack Kerouac. In the early 1950s, he was encouraged to pursue his unique path by mentors Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis and Aaron Copland as well as visual artists Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. Today, as he has for over 50 years, Amram continues to compose music while traveling the world as a conductor, soloist, bandleader, visiting scholar and narrator in five languages. Marianne Yoors is a ceramicist who shares her love of art. As founder of the Adopt-A-Pot program, Ms. Yoors has motivated the Pottery community at Greenwich House to beautify Jefferson Market Garden, solidifying this ongoing relationship between these two beloved Village institutions – all in an effort to build communities that serve Greenwich Village residents.

In a quarter of a century of working with clay, Yoors has developed into a passionate master of the medium, sharing her passion for the arts with fellow students and neighbors alike.

Silver City Bound is “Americana at its best” (Huffington Post). A unique collaboration between guitarist Justin Poindexter and accordionist and keyboardist Sam Reider, Silver City Bound is American roots music in motion.
