American Pottery Festival

September 8 - 10, 2017

Join us for the 19th Annual American Pottery Festival, September 8 – 10. Our annual fundraiser will once again gather a roster of national artists, representing the best in their fields, and offer a diverse array of ideations, processes, forms, & surfaces. The event kicks off with our Opening Night Party on Friday, September 8, 2017.

The American Pottery Festival is an annual three-day event that serves as our largest fundraising event each year, and is a mindfully-forged platform to bring together makers, clay lovers, learners, collectors, and the simply curious to play and be inspired.

Each year, the event includes artists from large and small markets around the country, from all career stages and ages, and some local gems. The richness of experience, knowledge, and generosity represented by 2017’s artists will provide learning opportunities for everyone, from student to collector to fellow maker. The weekend is always filled opportunities to engage directly with artists during image presentations, workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and casual gallery chats.

The APF Preview Show is your first chance to see a sampling of work from each 2017 artist. It is on view in the Sales Gallery from April 6 – May 7. We are fortunate to also represent most of this year’s artists at the NCECA conference in Portland from March 21 – 24. Visit us at our NCECA Gallery Expo space to be among the first to see their work in person at the Members Preview opening reception on the evening of March 21.

Please stay tuned for updates on APF events, artist rosters, ticket prices, volunteer needs, and opportunities to purchase work online.
