A ceramic exhibition drawing artists from Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast.

We wanted to have an exhibition which would show the public and those of us working with clay the wide range of talent and strength out there in our community.

It can be hard to organise exhibitions today but the Refinery Art Space gave us the opportunity to have a show where we could exhibit work from the emerging clay artists, many of them graduates from the Otago distance learning course and also have work from long established potters, some with international reputations and awards.

It was great to see the energy and commitment from everyone involved. The public loved the variety of work and the talent on show.

The attached photos give a feel for the exhibition and the wonderful space that The Refinery provides.
