Members... looking for something low key to do on Halloween? Come help us make pots for the upcoming fundraiser! Pop in anytime during members night on Tuesday Nov 5 from 7-9. There will be reclaimed clay available for you to use. This is a great opportunity to experiment but a monitor will also be there to help facilitate if you need some ideas for what to make.

Intentions are an interesting concept when it comes to artistry. Being an artist, from Kira’s perspective and experience, is about freedom of expression throughout the process and even in the final result. She’s come to learn that just because she starts with an idea or inspiration, it does not mean that her final product will imitate that.

Life is full of contradictions: as an artist, I rely on people to fill their homes with things of beauty to make a living. At some point, as we collectively trend towards smaller homes and fewer things, art consumers will inevitably run out of space for art.
