Cinco de Mugo -- Call to Artists

Indian River Potters’ Guild Director Valerie Karas is pleased to announce the studio’s third annual juried art show on Friday, May 4th,  “Cinco de Mug-o.” The Guild invites local ceramic artists to participate in their inspiring tribute to the drinking vessel. Currently home to six member artists, Indian River Potters’ Guild is an established anchor in the Eau Gallie Arts District, where many community and family friendly events are held.

The Guild has called for all interested artists to create pieces celebrating the great history of the drinking vessel. The opening reception for the show, with its display of various mugs, cups and
goblets will be May 4, 5:30 to 8:00pm, at Indian River Potters’ Guild, 1542 Guava Avenue, Eau Gallie Arts District. This event will take place during Eau Gallie Arts District’s monthly First Friday Art Walk.

Director/Owner Valerie Karas is characteristically full of enthusiasm for the upcoming activities of the Indian River Potters’ Guild, which celebrates its three-year anniversary in April. The studio is buzzing
with the building, decorating and firing of the artists’ inspired work. On display will be functional, sculptural and whimsical ceramic mugs.

“Our studio continues to grow, offering ceramic artists and fledgling potters a creative and extremely well-equipped space to pursue their art. We are always building our membership, and are also offering an expanded class and workshop schedule to individuals wishing to explore this medium. We look forward to including artists from other studios and experiences. We hope to build upon the cooperative arts community developing in Brevard. We can’t wait to share the collection of talented work with our guests.” Karas states.

“Cinco de Mug-o” should provide art enthusiasts with the chance to see a diverse and exciting collection of pottery from artists all around Brevard County. The show will be available for viewing through May 25.
