CALL for ENTRIES: 2nd Annual Clay National
Dinner is cooked (and eaten) in either undies or pajamas in my house. My husband usually cooks dinner. Dinner is cooked directly after work. My husband is a commercial potter. How are these connected? My hubby is forced (by me) to get out of his clay embedded clothing in the garage to prevent a gray trail in his wake. So, he cooks in whatever was under his clothes or pajamas if he makes it that far. This next call WANTS your clay, but please don’t attend the opening in your undies. Take a look…
Check out this Call for Entries from the Workhouse Arts Center (Lorton, VA outside D.C.) for The 2nd Annual Clay National. This is a great show, reasonable fee, respected juror and a historic venue. Please do not miss this opportunity!
