West Michigan Potters Guild
February 4 through 23
Reception: Saturday, February 23 – 10:00 a.m. – Noon
This exhibit showcases a selection of WMPG members creating clay work in a wide variety of processes and styles. Stop in and expand your knowledge of ceramics and support these West Michigan artists!

West Michigan Potters Guild began in 1983 as a group of clay artists organized to improve their own ceramic skills by providing a stimulating and inspirational discussion of technical problems, mutual interests and shared successes, also to acquaint the general public with standards, ethics and appreciation of ceramic art. This is accomplished through lectures, discussions, seminars, workshops and group exhibitions. These events are organized and sponsored by the guild and its members. Membership is open to all who are interested in the goals of this organization. The guild is currently over 80 members who specialize in a variety of firing techniques and construction methods in both functional and non-functional forms. The public is invited to attend workshops and bi-annual shows sponsored by the guild and experience the wealth of talent and knowledge that this guild has to offer.

Charter members of this organization have seen many changes, from a beginning of less that one dozen the guild has now grown to over 70 members. The guild sponsors and organizes two members sales each year. The Spring Show is held in April and the Fall Show in November at the St. Nicholas Antioichian Orthodox Church. Each show is an opportunity for art patrons to see the amazing diversity of technique and product. The guild sponsors 1 or 2 workshops each year. These educational workshops bring icons of the ceramic world, to demonstrate their own approach to this art form. Monthly meetings are held at members studios or community centers in the West Michigan area.
