Western PA Potters Tour



Potters Tour - Oct 16 - 17, 2010 from 10:00 am - 5:00pm

Nine studios - 18 Potters

As you drive the scenic back roads in western PA, you will encounter a growing community of potters. These potters share and promote their love of clay and its creative properties.

In the fall, these potters coordinate a tour. They clean up their studios, wash the clay off their hands, proudly put their work on display, and warmly invite the public to visit their workplace and to learn about the life of a potter and what inspires their work.

Host studios have invited guest potters to display their work. You can see and purchase the work of over 18 different potters in the nine studios on the tour.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
