The Thompson Valley Potters’ Guild is serving up something special this spring. We have been preparing a feast of pottery that will be on display in the Kamloops Arts Council Main Gallery at the Old Courthouse in Kamloops.
You are invited to a “Feast For The Eyes”. Opening Night is on Thursday evening, May 11th, from 7 pm to 9 pm.
“Feast For The Eyes” runs from May 10 to June 3, 2017.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday 10 am to 4 pm, May 10 to June 3.
“Feast for the Eyes” is an exhibit of functional dinnerware and serving pieces made by local ceramic artists. Some of the artists have chosen to show a full place setting – dinner plate, side plate, and a goblet or cup – while others have made service pieces such as a tea pot, pitcher, tray, or a centerpiece.
In addition to the functional wares we have included some pieces just for the eyes. Masks will be mounted on the walls surrounding the festivities below. The masks will represent guests or spectators adding to the celebratory atmosphere.
Opening night is a gathering of friends and a gathering of the curious. It’s a time to celebrate the creative spirit with in us all. A time to look, to see and to notice the beauty of clay once artists get their hands on it. It is, a feast for the eyes.
