"An Enchanted Forest": An Art in the Open pictorial presentation

The PEI Potters Studio had a great time getting pieces together for our "An Enchanted Forest" display as part of the 26 Aug 2017 "Art in the Open" project.

The following pictures are just a few samples of the show.  Thanks very much to the photgraphers who helped me with the pictures.  Shown below are pictures taken from dusk to full dark.

















Thanks to everyone who came.  This was a group project for the studio and we had a large percentage of our members either make pieces and or help with setting up and taking down the pieces. We had a lot of great comments from viewers and a great time.  Thanks also to all the organizers of the "Art in the Open" event.  You do a tremendous amount of work.

PEI Potters Studio Presents "An Enchanted Forest" for Art in the Open

Members of the PEI Potters Studio are excited to present a special project as part of Art in the Open this year. Using their imagination and skills in handbuilding and clay sculpting, studio members have created an amazing variety of whimsical ceramic pieces that will be installed in a wooded area in Victoria Park near the location of the studio.
 
Follow an illuminated path into an enchanted forest glen and discover a magical fairy village, complete with fairies and goblins, fairy houses and doors, toadstools and butterflies—and a few surprises!  Everyone is welcome to visit the exhibit between 4 pm and midnight on Saturday, August 26.
 
The PEI Potters Studio is grateful for financial support from the Community Cultural Partnership Program as well as in-kind support from This Town is Small.
