Coastal Carolina Clay Guild’s Annual Holiday Show and Sale Takes Place in Wilmington, NC - Nov. 11-13, 2011

In celebration of its fifth year, the Coastal Carolina Clay Guild’s annual Holiday Show and Sale will open with hors d’oeuvres and wine bar from 5-8pm on Friday evening, Nov. 11, 2011. The Show and Sale will continue on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 12 & 13 from 10am-4pm each day at the Hannah Block Community Arts Center, located at 120 South Second Street in Wilmington, NC.

Many of its members, including well-known potters Hiroshi Sueyoshi, Don Johns, and Dina Wilde-Ramsing will be exhibiting and selling their work at the show.

The ever-popular raffle will be held again this year. All proceeds from the raffle will benefit Empty Bowls and other community projects. Each artist represented in the show will donate a piece for the raffle. Those attending may purchase chances to win artwork of their choice.

The CCCG, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 2007 by a group of Wilmington potters to promote and exchange information about all types of ceramic arts and to provide mutual support, encouragement, and education for its members and for the community. Not only does the guild offer workshops each year with nationally known sculptors and potters for its members and those in the community interested in the clay arts; it also provides community outreach by visiting schools to demonstrate and teach clay techniques to students. In addition, the guild uses its membership dues to offer scholarships and grants to its members. In only five short years, the CCCG has grown to include over 100 ceramic artists from the southeast coastal region.
