Potters to hold Warwick exhibition

WHEN the mercury heads towards zero next Thursday, art appreciators are advised to make a beeline for creativity with a warm edge.

The Warwick Potters Association will hold its 31st annual exhibition “Jazzy Pots” as part of this year’s Jumpers and Jazz Festival.

This showcase of local talent is offered with a tasty difference.

If you buy a handmade soup bowl, the local potters will obligingly fill it with hot homemade soup.

Warwick Potters Association treasurer Sue Creed said the hearty enticement was specifically designed to bring art-appreciating visitors and locals in from the cold.

“We think the concept of selling our bowls and then offering soup fits perfectly with the festival theme,” Mrs Creed said.

“It is just a rather friendly way of showcasing our efforts.”

But the exhibition won’t be limited to all manner of handmade bowls.

Sculptures, platters, plates, statues and a range of other artistic feats will be on display in the association’s newly renovated gallery.

“This is our chance to show everyone what happens up here,” Mrs Creed said.

The Warwick Potters’ Association exhibition at 63 Horsman Road will be opened on July 22 at 6pm by Audrey Hoffmann.

“The bowls, complete with complimentary soup, will be on sale for $10 each,” Mrs Creed said.

Live jazz music will also be a feature of this year’s exhibition.
