It's that time of the year where the West Michigan Potters Guild offers a wide variety of offerings you can see and buy at it's 33rd Annual Fall Show.
The show is happening Friday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cultural Center at St. Nicholas located at 2250 East Paris SE in Grand Rapids.
The West Michigan Potters Guild began in 1983 with a small group of potters who felt the isolation of working alone in their studios.
The guild sponsors one or two workshops each year. These educational workshops bring icons of the ceramic world, to demonstrate their own approach to this art form.
Guild members sell their work all over the country. Some members wholesale to national department stores, others sell through art galleries or at art fairs. Several members maintain their own studio/galleries.
Members range from professional artists to amateurs and students. All members benefit from each other's skills, talents and mutual goals. Monthly meetings are held at members studios or community rooms in the West Michigan area.
Meetings are intended to provide programs of ceramic interest and education.
