Art in the Open 2018--Underwater Eden
 
For this year's Art in the Open event on August 25, members of the PEI Potters Studio created a magical undersea world featuring brightly-coloured fish and other sea creatures made of clay in Victoria Park. Here is a photo gallery of the many creations that were part of the display--there was even a visiting mermaid! Thanks to all of the members who contributed to this year's project and to everyone who came to visit the display!
