The Benefit Exhibition will open the evening of December 10.

The on-line auction will run from December 1-December 10.

We've invited 100 of the best potters from around the country to send work
to be fired in the Anagama Wood Kiln this past June and October. Each has generously
donated theirwork to support the facilities and programs of the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts.

Watershed is a premier arts center located in Newcastle, Maine. It's mission is to provide both time
and space for artists to work in clay. An international program located in the beautiful coastal
Boothbay region of Maine, Watershed offers residencies for artists to explore new ideas and
possibilities within their work.

All proceeds from this event will go to help fund the programs and facilities at Watershed .

100% of all sales from the Raffle and On-line Auction will go to benefit Watershed!


The On-line Auction is OPEN!
