The Local Clay Potters’ Guild, an Indiana cooperative organization for clay artists, has opted to turn its 23rd annual showcase and sale throughout November from an event at the Monroe County Convention Center into a virtual pottery show.
“We’re doing this to protect our artists and patrons during a pandemic,” the guild said in a press release Wednesday.
Using the website eventeny.com, an online event platform, the exhibits will showcase artists’ work individually rather than in a gallery setting. Additionally, on Nov. 6 and 7, there will be online events including demonstrations from artists and peeks into their pottery studios.
“Each artist brings a unique creative touch to their work with a mix of form, texture and color,” the press release said.
The shop will be open online throughout the entire month of November and feature pottery for everyday use including mugs, bowls, plates and sculptural work.
