The Arts Station is getting ready for spring and is looking for Elk Valley potters and ceramicists to submit their work for an upcoming exhibit.

Courtney Baker of The Arts Station said that Array of Clay will focus on 2D and 3D art instead of 1D pieces like paintings.

She said that, “the pieces could be anything from mugs to clay wall hangings. Individualism is more than encouraged.”

The Arts Station is hoping that the tactile show along with the changing seasons will help inspire local artists.

“We have so many amazing potters and ceramicists in the Elk Valley that we are hoping to showcase all of their amazing works,” said Baker.

Any and all pottery and ceramic works are eligible to be in this show and sale, and people of all skill levels and styles are encouraged to submit works for consideration.

The submission deadline for Array of Clay is April 14 at 2 p.m. and the exhibition will open on April 24.

For an application or more information about the exhibit contact Courtney at The Arts Station at 250-423-4842.
