Party time!

So we had a wonderful turnout, and a really nice time. Thank you so much everyone for coming today, supporting our group and the school. It's nice to see all those pots finding new homes.

Remember, our sale is on until May 9th, plenty of time to pick up a nice gift for Mother's Day. A portion of all our proceeds goes to The Art School at Old Church. Go here for details.

And here are some photos:

Underground Potters Annual Sale

If you have some time to stop by our reception today, Saturday, April 30th from 12-2pm, we will all be there to meet and greet.

Every year we organize our little sale at the Cafe Gallery at The Art School at Old Church, in Demarest, NJ, hoping to help raise money for the school that nurtured us all.

This school is a wonderful, magical place, with many inspiring instructors. There are painting, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, collage, photography, drawing, ink-brush painting...getting dizzy! And every class has something genuine to offer anyone looking for an outlet. I quickly worked my way through all the ceramic instructors - Ina Chapler, Bea Bloom, Frank and Polly Martin, Susan Beecher, Ruth Borgenicht, Eric Lawrence, DeBorah Goletz, Judy Schaefer, Marilyn Dale.

Mikhail Zakin helped to establish the school, and she is a very inspiring instructor, and a wonderful artist. She helped each of us to find a way to express ourselves in clay, and to keep on pushing ourselves to see what we could accomplish. I'll always feel there is a wonderful world in ceramics, with inspirations in the past and present, left for me to explore. So exciting!

So our group is privileged to share our work for this sale, and hope you can stop in and see what's up.

And of course a party is a great way to do it!

But our sale will continue through May 9th. See the work of Susan Bogen, Sandy Pancrazi, Allan Drossman, Itsuko Ishiguro and Cynthia Shevelew and myself, Ellen Mulligan. And this year we are so happy to have Margit Werner-Ergas showing with us. Maybe next year Ted Whittemore can join us again!
