Ventura Potters Guild Annual Sale

Ventura Potters Guild Artists will have their 49th annual show and sale in Ojai’s Libbey Park on June 7 and 8 from 9 am to 6 pm. Forty artists will display their latest ceramic creations ranging from functional pots to art pieces. “Our members produce functional and non-functional works in most of the available clay varieties (earthenware, lowfire, highfire, stoneware, porcelain) in sizes ranging from scale miniatures to large urns and sculpture pieces. Members bring a wide range of experience and abilities to the show.”, says Guild President Richard Franklin.

Held in conjunction with the Ojai Music Festival, the Annual Show is a great opportunity to see what Ventura County artists are creating in clay. The artists will be on hand to discuss their respective methods and techniques. A percentage of all sales at the annual show goes to scholarships for deserving students at Ventura County Community Colleges and Santa Barbara City College.

The Ventura County Potters Guild was founded in 1957 by local ceramic artists and teachers. It is a non-profit organization formed to promote the art and craft of ceramics in the community and to provide a forum for local potters to share their experiences and knowledge of clay. This knowledge is passed on through monthly programs with guest speaker presentations and member's show and tell, informative newsletters, workshops, shows, sales and a library that features both books and videos. Guild meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month from September through May at the Ventura Senior Recreation Center at 420 East Santa Clara Street, Ventura, CA.
