The Potters Place Gallery in Courtenay, BC is pleased to announce their Call For Entry “Off The Wall” featuring functional and sculptural drinking vessels.

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.
