Old Salem Pottery Fair

I'm heading up to Old Salem this Saturday the 21st for their fist ever Pottery Fair. I'll have some great pots and tiles there for sale, some salt glazed and some ash glazed. The pottery Fair is going on in conjunction with the opening of, The groundbreaking exhibit "Art In Clay: Masterworks of North Carolina Earthenware" March 22--August 14. That was organized, by Old Salem Museums & Gardens in Winston-Salem, NC, the Chipstone Foundation in Milwaukee, WI, and the Caxambas Foundation in Milwaukee, WI.
The Show has traveled from Milwaukee Art Museum, to The Old Salem Museums & Gardens: March 22, 2011—August 14, 2011, then to, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and then, on to The Huntsville Museum of Art. Im looking forward to being in Old Salem its a great place with wonderful old buildings and atmosphere and some fond memories for me to. :-)
I'm am also so excited to see this show I love the work form this period, it's been a major influence on my work over the years.

Thanks Julie, I didn't make it to the show too busy selling pots. They gave me tickets and I'm planing on going back soon, can't wait to see the show! Hope your firing went well in the new kiln!
