We are meeting at the studio this week to work on a City Funded Project the potters guild is spearheading. We will be painting ceramic tiles that will then be fired by the potters guild and eventually hung up somewhere at CN Centre celebrating Canada's 150th birthday. The potters guild will be supplying the tiles and the glazes. We just need to bring our imagination and ideas of something that is representative of Prince George for each of us. This may not take us the whole evening so bring along something you'd like to work on if you wish and we need to discuss and finalize a topic for our 2017 showing this December at the Rustad Galleria at Two Rivers Gallery.
