Holiday Exhibition

Nov 18 to Dec 30

Save the Date!

Holiday Open House: Sunday, November 18, 12 – 4 pm
Member Preview Hour, 11 am – 12 pm

Make 2018 the year you share your curiosity and clay appreciation with those you love! We’ll have over 1000 pots to use during everyday moments: from a single mug for quiet morning coffee to show-stopping serving pieces for your dinner gatherings. Take the time to choose a memorable gift for the friend or loved one who is traditionally impossible to impress and will now grin with satisfaction each time they think of you.

We can help you choose the perfect present, giftwrap it for you, and even ship it anywhere in the US or Canada!

Join us in creating good holiday cheer, feeding your creative spirit, and celebrating the opening of the Holiday and MN NICE Graduates Exhibitions.

Holiday Mug 2017

This year’s holiday mugs were created by two highly-respected lovelies from our local art community: Lisa Buck and Tricia Schmidt.

$29 each

Each mug is giftwrapped and includes the artist’s favorite mug-worthy recipe! It’s the perfect gift for corporate clients, friends, teachers, coaches, family, or your very own mug collection!
