Canton potters’ artwork on sale at Potters PlaceBy Canton Citizen
Canton potter Debbie McCarty will be one of the featured artists at the upcoming Potters Place Spring Show & Sale, “Flora and Fauna,” next Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 4-6, at Potters Place in Walpole.
McCarty, owner of Cove Lane Pottery, will display many of her sea-inspired pieces, including her black sea bass, flounder, bluefish, and scup sculptures alongside the artwork of more than 20 other local potters.
“My husband jokes that I look at the world as it relates to pottery. He is mostly right,” said McCarty. “It was his birthday that inspired me to begin making fish — his favorite fish to catch at the Cape is a striped bass.”
Visitors will have a chance to meet McCarty and the other potters at a Meet the Artists reception on Friday evening from 6-9 p.m.
The show features a wide array of pottery items for purchase in all price ranges, including vases, batter bowls, mugs, berry bowls, embellished platters, casserole dishes, bowl sets, cookie jars, plates, garden ornaments, sculptures, and more. This open studio offers a wonderful opportunity for the public to learn more about the craft of pottery, as well as the upcoming classes at Potters Place for both adults and children.
In addition to the Friday reception, the annual Spring Show & Sale will be open Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Close to Walpole center, Potters Place is located at 127B Old West Street. Free admission and parking are available, and credit and debit cards are accepted.
Potters Place is a non-profit organization dedicated to both art and community outreach. This year, Potters Place will donate a portion of the proceeds from the spring sale to the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts, a new non-profit organization that operates an open admission animal care and adoption facility on the Brockton/Easton line.
