Gallery Show Schedule

FEBRUARY 2 - 27
Winter Warmers

Warm someone's heart (or belly) this February with the gift of a handmade mug. Enjoy your morning coffee, tea-time in the afternoon, hot chocolate after a snowball fight, or soup for dinner with a handcrafted mug by a local arist.

AUGUST 3 - 28
Summer Colors

Using underglazes, stains, and glazes artists embellish the surface of their forms - functional and sculptural with abstract and realistic imagery.

MARCH 30 - APRIL 24
Natural Wonder

The spring bird migration is starting, cherry trees are blooming, and Scope artists bring inspiration from the natural world to their work. Flowers, birds, fish, and other creatures are interpreted in a range of styles: realistic and anthropomorphic; sculptural and functional.

AUGUST 31 - OCTOBER 2
Inspirations

Come see what inspires our artists this month. From wrens outside a kitchen window to paintings by Picasso, ceramic artists are inspired by a variety of sources.

JUNE 1 - JULY 3
The Painted Form

Clay, perhaps more than any other medium, offers a surface that is versatile, challenging, and remarkable in many ways. Using underglaze, stains, and glazing techniques ceramic artists 'paint' the surface of their forms - functional and sculptural - with abstract and realistic imagery. 

NOVEMBER 9 - DECEMBER 4
FUNction Reigns Supreme

Functional work abounds in this show with unique pieces that will pique your interest and bring a new look to your favorite dish.

Additionally, our ornament boutique will be front and center beginning mid-November.
