Opening Reception for “Art of the Pot: Plus”
October 10 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Art of the Pot is a collective of Austin based potters committed to expanding the reach and understanding of contemporary studio pottery through studio tours, public lectures and gallery exhibitions.
Art of the Pot was founded in 2004 as a way to bring some much-needed emphasis and interest to the contemporary pottery scene in Austin. The initial goals were to invite a few out of town potters for a weekend show and sale to give the public an opportunity to see something new in the field of contemporary pottery.
After nearly 10 years, the modest beginnings have bloomed into a fully formed studio tour with national recognition. Annually the Art of the Pot principles host 11 invited guests from across the country in their studios for an event-filled weekend. With funding from the City of Austin’s Cultural Arts Grant, their programming has expanded to include public lectures and educational events. They continue to develop wonderful and unique partnerships with local restaurants, galleries and businesses that help further their goal, to expand the reach of contemporary studio pottery throughout Austin and the greater community.
This event is free and open to the public.
