Thursday, April 21, 2016

 

The Worcester Center for Crafts Krikorian Gallery's will host The Pottery Invitational from May 13 to 15. The live exhibition will feature ceramics from 19 artists and the artists themselves will be in attendance. 

Artists include Ingrid Bathe (New Castle, ME), Julie Crosby (Trumansburg, NY), Hayne Bayless (Ivoryton, CT), Kyla Toomey (Waltham, MA), Colleen McCall (Elmira, NY), Nicole Aquillano (Boston, MA), Lucy Fagella (Greenfield, MA), Michael Connelly (Philadelphia, PA), Todd Wahlstrom & Aysha Peltz (Whitingham, VT), Tom O'Malley (Forestdale, RI), Sarah Heimann (Lebanon, NH), Holly Walker (Randolph VT), Tom White (Northfield, MA), Robbie Heidinger, ( Westhampton, MA), Rob Cartelli (South Newfane, VT), Maureen Mills (Portsmouth, NH), Normandy Alden (West Winfield NY), and Robbie Lobell (Coupeville, WA).

This year's show will also include demonstrations by artists on the making ceramics and by a local flower arranger and a chef on using handmade pottery in everyday life. 

The Pottery Invitational is held over the course of one night and two days, the Pottery Invitational is organized by two guest curators who invite a selection of artists to participate. The curators this year are Aysha Peltz and Todd Wahlstrom who work in Whitingham, Vermont. 

"The Pottery Invitational is part of Worcester's creative economy. It markets the work of artists who sell their work. People come from far and wide, stay in hotels and eat in local restaurants, and we move closer to our mission -- sustaining crafts as an important part of our community and society," said Honee Hess, executive director of the Crafts Center. 

The Pottery Invitational was started at the Worcester Center for Crafts in 2003 as a way to expose the community to the work of regional and national ceramic artists, and to assist artists in creating a new market for their work.
