By Mary Main, CVAA


LAY 2015, our next Exhibit at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre's Gallery, is a 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Fraser Valley Potters Guild Association.


Count on this show to be an exciting and unique exhibit of works in clay by over 30 Potters from Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley.

Juried by David Lloyd, a well known Vancouver Ceramic Artist and Arts Educator, "Clay 2015" will be an exhibit not to be missed. David will select the pieces for the show from a wide variety of Ceramic techniques and individual styles, submitted by the talented Artists of the Fraser Valley Potters Guild.


A favourite aspect of this ceramics exhibit, which was last in Chilliwack in 2012, is the buy & take Mug Wall.  Participating Potters will provide a selection of mugs and small pieces available for immediate sale, so visitors can select their favourite mug and take it home right away. Many other pieces in the exhibit will also be available for sale, and can be collected at the end of the Exhibits run, July 19th. 

Come early to the Opening for the very best selection whether you might like to reserve a very special piece, or buy a mug. and be sure to vote for your favourite Artist in the exhibit. The winner will receive the 2015 People's Choice Award

The Opening Reception and Awards Presentation will be June 20th, from 1-3 p.m. with artists in attendance. Chilliwack has a vibrant and active pottery community. Come meet our local potters and more from around the Greater Vancouver area at the Opening and see their most recent gallery work. 

This Exhibit runs from June 18 to July 18, from noon to 5pm, Wednesday to Saturday. A local Potter will be available to provide group tours, on request just call ahead to make arrangements with Holly McKeen, at 604-846-6440 or visits for more information
