ARTIST OF THE MONTHSan Joaquin Potters Guild | Reception: May 11th, 2013 | 4-7:00pm
A non-profit organization, the San Joaquin Potters Guild was founded in 1991 by a small group of clay artists who were interested in the camaraderie and inspiration that could be gained by association with other ceramic artists. Over the years the guild has grown and now includes glass artists. A friendly, diverse and active group, the San Joaquin Potters Guild is committed to maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and design in clay and glass. The organization encourages innovation and professional growth in technical skills and aesthetics; it also promotes public appreciation and understanding of ceramic and glass art, and provides a medium for exchange of ideas and concerns within the field.
The members of the San Joaquin Potters Guild represent artists in San Joaquin and surrounding counties (Tuolumne, Calaveras, Mariposa, Stanislaus, Sacramento, Amador and Contra Costa). The guild welcomes clay and glass artists from throughout Northern California. Exhibit display from April 30 to May 31, 2013.
