  • Pottery students should be aware of firing schedules when deciding on which pieces to display.
  • Students may offer their work for sale, but this is not a requirement to participate in the show.
  • 40% of the retail price of all sold work will go to Wesleyan Potters to support our facilities and educational programming, please adjust your retail prices accordingly.
  • Submission paperwork will be available shortly in the Gallery Shop.
  • Work should be dropped off during regular Gallery Shop hours between February 18 - March 17. The deadline to submit work is Friday, March 17 at 4 p.m.

We will have an opening reception for your show on Saturday, March 25th from 4-6 pm. (please note this is a correction from our original Call for Entries email)

We hope you take this opportunity to share the wonderful work you've been making with family and friends, to share tips and success stories with your peers and colleagues, and to celebrate your progress as an artist and a maker. We want to share with the community what we see here every day: our students are an incredibly talented group of unique individuals who make outstanding work. We look forward to your submissions!

It is very important that everyone assists in advertising and spreading the word. Please use your own email and social media as soon as possible to encourage your friends and family to attend!
