You're invited!  Join us 5:30 p.m., Friday, March 16th, at the Brew House Association in Pittsburgh to celebrate the launch of our upcoming issue, Volume 46, Number 1, Winter/Spring 2018, "Regional Perspectives and Pottery Tours"!  Light refreshments will be provided, non-members can sign-up to receive a free, one-year, digital membership, and all attendees will be entered into a raffle for new SP logo merchandise, our new poster, print issues, and tickets to GrowlerFest (see below). Editor, Elenor Wilson, will speak briefly about new opportunities at Studio Potter, and will be available to answer questions about the organization and the journal.

Afterward, attend GrowlerFest! GrowlerFest connects artists to the craft beer movement, showcasing ties between food, beer, and ceramics. It’s goal is to link craft breweries and the vitality of handmade pottery through unique collaborations between artists for the creation of beer growlers, jugs, and other containers used for storing or serving beer. Curated by Alexandra Jelleberg & Bradley Klem, the GrowlerFest 2018 exhibition will be on view March 2-29, 2018 in the Brew House Association’s Gallery. Opening reception is Friday, March 16th, 6-9 p.m. Click here for more info and the list of exhibiting artists.
