Burgess is a well-known potter and artist who has been instrumental in the education of many local artist through his teaching in the Fine Art Department at North Island College.

His work is sumptuous, shapely and sexy. We rarely get to see it locally and so the Potters Place is pleased that he agreed to be the special guest artist for July.

Maeva Collins is the Potter Place in-house artist who has created an entirely new array of wood and pit fired pieces. Her work always pleases the eye, the hand and the senses.

The opening reception July 8 runs from 7 to 9 p.m. to view these artist’s work and meet both of them. Refreshments will be served.

The Potters Place is on the corner of 5th and Cliffe in downtown Courtenay open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
