Pottery Saie by WNMU students and faculty
|Saturday, October 10, 2020, 09:00am - 03:00pm
Students and faculty of Western New Mexico University’s clay department will hold their 15th Annual Friends of Clay Pottery Sale on Saturday, October 10, from 9am to 3pm, at the Lions Club Building, 8th and Bullard, at the north end of Makers Market.
The sale will feature a great selection of pottery and clay art works donated by current and former WNMU clay students, faculty, and professional potters. All proceeds from the sale will be used for the benefit of Western’s clay program.
Sponsored by “Friends of Clay,” the annual pottery sales have grown in size each year since 2005 and have been an astounding success. Funds raised by the group are used to enhance and promote ceramics and the WNMU clay program through the offering of lectures, workshops, trips, and scholarships, as well as assisting in the purchase of equipment and supplies for the university clay studio.
A main attraction of the annual sale has been the wide variety of clay works offered, from beginning-student pots to gallery-quality pieces, all at reasonable prices. Also included are works by nationally-known ceramic artists, donated by private collectors.
The sale is a unique opportunity to support the arts, and there will be something for everyone – parents and kids, artists and collectors, homemakers, gardeners, and gift-givers.
