October 1-27, 2018
Opening Reception October 4, 4-7pm
This is very special event, in that a call for entry went province wide, and there will be some absolutely amazing hand made cups and mugs and tea bowls etc. etc. from all across this province.
British Columbia is well known as a hot-bed of ceramic talent. The local pool of ceramic artists right here in the Comox Valley is so wonderfully rich, as you likely know if you have ever visited The Potters Place Gallery.
We celebrate and introduce a different local potter each month as our featured artist, or we have a special event such as this exhibition where we showcase handmade pottery in our featured window.
We wanted to introduce you to the wide variety of artists who work in clay, living in Canada's magical west coast and thought what better way than to have an exhibition and sale of something that each of us use on a daily basis... The drinking vessel; The favourite mug. This biennial event is our 2nd exhibition of OFF THE WALL. The first was a huge success and you, our gallery goers have asked for it's return. We listened.
Come celebrate the beauty in the everyday with handmade pottery drinking vessels hand-crafted by very talented British Columbian Potters through October 2018 at The Potters Place Gallery in Downtown Courtenay, Comox Valley.
If you are able to come to our opening on October 4 from 4-7pm, not only will you enjoy all the cups
on display, but you will also enjoy appetizers and treats and beverages served up in handmade pottery mugs and cups by local potters from The Potters Place Gallery.
The Potters Place Gallery is operated by a collective of potters dedicated to promoting public
awareness and appreciation of the ceramic arts, supporting ceramic artists by giving them an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work, awarding bursaries and helping potters in need.
The Exhibition is open to all residents of British Columbia 18 years of age or older. We hope this exhibition will encourage potters to exhibit their work and help market the artistic creations of potters to the public in B.C. and across Canada.
Come and see a host of ceramic mugs, tumblers, beer steins, yunomis, wine cups, whiskey sniffers, chawans and tea bowls.
