Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts: Tea Party!

Teapot by Simon van der Ven, Watershed Session VI

The Harlow Gallery and Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts invite you to tea.

Join Harlow Gallery staff & board members at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts for afternoon tea and homemade pastries.  The Watershed campus is located at 19 Brick Hill Road in Newcastle, Maine.

Watershed artists-in-residence during their final summer session are collaborating to make ceramic teapots in their studios; the group includes filmmakers, painters, sculptors, writers, directors and potters.  Come learn about their working process during a slide presentation and visit their studios after you’ve  filled up on tea and delicious confections!  For those interested in touring the Watershed studios and grounds, a tour will be offered at 2 p.m. prior to the tea party. The afternoon will also feature a pottery sale.

Advance sign up is $10 per person, or $8 for members of the Harlow Gallery/ Kennebec Valley Art Association. $15 the day of the event.    Click here  to RSVP and pay for your tickets online.   Or call us at the Harlow at 622-3813.
