Enter in our competition!  This is a show you do not want to miss!  

Our past opening receptions have attracted over 250 visitors. 

This year we expect to exhibit over 100 ceramic pieces in our Main Gallery Exhibition.  All pieces are for sale.  

In our Upper Gallery Exhibition we show and sell the ceramic designs of McGroarty's students.

Cash awards totaling $700 will be offered for our Main Gallery juried works.  The submitted works will be juried by Melody Cooper, who is also this year’s featured guest artist.  Six awards: Best in show, 2nd place, 3rd place, and three awards for honorable mention.  Winners will be announced and awards presented at the opening reception.

This year's Juror and featured artist is Melody Cooper.
