Wednesday June 9th was a great evening at the Loft Gallery in Dorset. Painter, Elizabeth Johnson and I (Tara) were the featured artist of the evening and both gave small chats on our practice/inspiration/outlook. I was surprised and excited by the turn out of people. It was especially wonderful to meet some other potters in the area. These events are really great for networking with like minded people and drawing them out of the woodwork. Chad Ingram from the Minden Times was there as well and captured nicely in his article Perspectives on potting and painting some of the things discussed at the event. Great support from the Arts Council of Haliburton Highlands and ACDC
