PEI Potters Studio Collaborates in Group Show at the Arts Guild
A special collaborative group show called The Journey to Mastery: Painting and Pottery will be held at the Gallery at the Guild from October 14 to 24. This show, featuring pottery by members of the PEI Potters Studio and oil paintings by students in Lysette Sampson’s Art Class, will offer a visually appealing combination of painting and pottery that all will enjoy.
The show is being held this year to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of the creation of the PEI Potters Studio. Over the years, studio members have developed excellent skills in both wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery, producing an amazing variety of quality pieces, and this special show is an opportunity to showcase their work.
Lysette Sampson’s art class consists of students of varying skill levels in oil painting. Lysette trained in Montreal and has been teaching in Rustico for more than 20 years. At present she teaches 20 adults, all of whom produce excellent work. Several members of her class will be displaying their work during this exciting group show.
An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 14 from 7 to 9 pm and the gallery will be open from 12 to 5 pm from Tuesday to Saturday. For more information check http://www.theguildpei.com/gallery.
