Have you ever had your pottery critiqued? It's a great way to learn about your art.

This free event at Central PARC Art Studios on Sunday evening, April 29th from 6:30-8:30 pm. is open to any potter. Barb Gibson, the guest artist, will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the critique. With a MFA in Ceramics from U of M, she has worked in and instructed pottery for years. She is also the subject of the Emmy nominated short, "Fire & Clay: Ceramics Artist Barb Gibson," (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20LT65LgFQU)

Bring one or two pieces of pottery with you along with a pot luck dish to share. We'll start the night with dinner then begin the critique at 7:00. With the time constraints, there will be a limited number of critiques but we will all learn from the valuable information given by Barb.
