POTTERS FROM ACROSS THE NORTH ISLAND SHOWCASE THEIR WORK IN WAIHI OVER LABOUR WEEKEND
An exciting showcase for the art of pottery will again come to Waihi over Labour Weekend, featuring more than 130 pieces by artists from across the North Island.
“Clear As Mud” is a show featuring the beautiful, practical, sculptural, whimsical or just plain weird work of more than 30 potters, from novices to professionals who exhibit internationally. It runs at the Waihi Arts Centre & Museum, Kenny Street, from 10am-4pm daily from October 20th to the 23rd October. Entry is free.
The aim is to promote potters, attract visitors to the town and add to the area’s already vibrant visual arts scene.
Event coordinator Bridget Boot (black shed pottery) said: “We’re again expecting to have a very diverse range of submissions including sculptural pieces, functional and whimsical, from garden totems to wall pieces. Waihi is home to several potters who exhibit locally, regionally and internationally. People stopping by to view the show will be amazed at the wide range of talent. We’re excited to showcase potters who have never entered or exhibited their works before.
All the work on display will be available for purchase, with 100% of the profit from the sale of each item going to its maker.
October 20-23 (10am-4pm)
