Art has a voice, and that voice can be LOUD. This Friday we celebrate art with meaning and message. Throughout history art has been used to convey our thoughts feelings and beliefs. Political commentary, wars, peace, social and economic trials and triumphs have all been conveyed in art. From posters to sculptures, artists give meaning and message to our thoughts and emotions. Join us as we showcase three dimensional artwork with deep meaning. Learn the Siren's story, created by Norm Gitzen. Marvel at Linda Manganaro's mixed media creations full of story and message. Talk to Tracy Rosof-Petersen about her expressions of life and loss in clay, and feel the textures of Lois Herricks creations, born from her vivid imagination.

See you at 6:00....

Let's Get DIRTY!

You have to come to the Gallery on February 18th for our first annual "Pottery Throw-Down!". We will have three pottery wheels set up in front of the Gallery, and our talented potters will compete to see who can throw the most bowls, create the biggest and the tallest bowls, and generally throw some mud around! We invite our guests to take a spin at the wheel--just be sure to wear something you don't mind getting dirty! If you've never worked clay on a wheel, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. If you are a potter, come show your stuff and enter the competition!

Finished bowls will be fired and offered for sale during our Empty Bowl Project to raise funds for Haitian relief efforts.

This will be a fun and very interactive event, so mark your calendars!! See you at 6:00!
