Students and faculty of Western New Mexico University’s clay program will host the 12th Annual Friends of Clay Pottery Sale on Saturday, April 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., on North Bullard in downtown Silver City, next to the Pink Store.
The sale will feature a diverse selection of pottery and clay art works donated by current and former WNMU clay students, faculty, and professional potters. All proceeds from the sale will be used for the benefit of the WNMU clay program.
Sponsored by a group of supports known as the “Friends of Clay,” the annual pottery sales have grown in size each year since 2005. Funds raised by the group are used to enhance and promote ceramics and the WNMU clay program through the offering of lectures, workshops, trips, scholarships, as well as assisting in the purchase of equipment and supplies for the university clay studio.
A main attraction of the annual sales has been the wide variety of clay works offered, from beginning-student pots to gallery-quality pieces, all at reasonable prices. The sale is a unique opportunity to support the arts, and there will be something for everyone – parents and kids, artists and collectors, homemakers, gardeners, and gift-givers.
