Arts on the Green presents a ceramics exhibit featuring works by members of Montgomery Potters. The exhibit is on display through June 4, 2023. Meet the artists and view their works at a joint Artists Reception on Thursday, April 27 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at both the Arts Barn & Kentlands Mansion, where the Gaithersburg Fine Arts Association’s exhibition will be on display. The joint reception is open to all and free to attend. Light refreshments will be served. Masks & social distancing are encouraged, but not required.
Members of Montgomery Potters will also provide docent tours of the exhibit from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the Arts Barn’s 20th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, April 15. “We are so pleased to welcome the Montgomery Potters to the Arts Barn Gallery,” says Gallery Program Coordinator Jaree Donnelly. “Their work is terrific and varied in style, and we hope our patrons will enjoy perusing the pieces from this talented group of artists & choose to acquire something from the exhibit for their collection or to give as a wonderful, unique gift.”
The group is exhibiting 109 pieces and will replenish with additional work as the exhibit continues. Initially established as The Clay Pigeons in 1952, the club renamed itself in 1967 as Montgomery Potters to reflect the broader community that had grown up around clay. Montgomery Potters strives to bring clay artists together in the spirit of friendship & creativity to share knowledge & ideas. The club facilitates building skills through workshops and programs, exchanging ideas on all aspects of ceramics, and stimulating community interest in ceramics.
