News from Cape Cod Potters

16

This exhibition is to be held at The Cape Cod Museum of Art, 60 Hope Lane, Dennis, Ma. The dates of the exhibit will be December 16,2021 through March 13, 2022.

This show will honor the diversity of the work of the Cape Cod Potters and be the beginning of a year long celebration of the Museum's 40 years of existence.

Harry Holl, one of the founders of the Museum, was also instrumental in founding the Cape Cod Potters or the Cape Cod Cooperative as it was initially named. Our organization is now incorporated and non profit.   This exhibition will be juried by a yet to be named juror. There will be no theme, but rather it will be a showcase for the best work of the individual potters.

The number of pieces selected will be dependent on the size of our membership as of September 2021.

2021 membership is free but we do still need you to fill out the membership form that is on our website www.capecodpotters.org. It is not possible to fill this out online, so please print out the membership form and send it in now.

More information about this exhibition will be forth coming in the coming months.
