During the month of September the front gallery will feature the work created by studio members during the Monday Member Challenges. The Monday night member challenge was created by Karla Nelson, with the goal of developing a stronger sense of community at our clay center. Karla chooses one member each month to decide on a clay challenge for the other members. We meet the second Monday of each month, begin with a potluck dinner and then the member presents the challenge. Studio members then set to work. Each potter's style tends to be present in the pieces created, making them each unique, even though all potters were presented with the same challenge. These challenges also allow for expansion of members' capabilities and skills with clay.
A Thursday night gallery opening will welcome guests on September 28th, as MWCC dedicates our front gallery to the Vreeland Family for supporting our growth and physical expansion to accomplish our mission serving the greater Grand Forks community, from 2008 through October 2022. The Vreeland Family Gallery reception will take place 5:00 to 7:00, with the dedication at 6:00, at Muddy Waters Clay Center, 2014 13th Ave. N, Grand Forks, ND. We hope you will attend!
In our members' gallery, you will find ceramic pieces, of all shapes, sizes and glaze finishes, and we add new pottery weekly. Artists are always working on new ceramic techniques and producing unique pottery, sculptures and glaze combinations. Our artists each have a unique style--you will see a lot of variety in ceramics arts when you visit our gallery. Have a special someone in your life? We have so many options for gifts or for your own home decor. Vases, bowls, cups, garden decor...we have something for everyone! We are open Saturdays 10 - 2 and by appointment.
