The Old Church Pottery Show and Sale began in 1975 as a fundraiser for the Art School at Old Church. Long-time friends Karen Karnes and Mikhail Zakin, Art School founder, wanted to bring together their vibrant community of potters with the local community to offer an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind works of art while supporting the newly-established cultural resource. The show has grown to include up to 30 national and international artists each year, and offers more than 2,000 pots for sale over its three-day span. Participating potters are invited to the show based on recommendations by their peers.


The 2018 show will take place November 30 – December 2. Expect to find functional mugs, dishware and servers, as well as sculptural works. Visit for more information on participating artists, curators, and the show’s history. All proceeds benefit the school.
