To all Vashon Ceramic Artists and Makers

VCA is hosting an exhibition of Akio Takamori’s ceramic and print art in the VCA Gallery for the month of May 2022.

In conjuction with that show the VCA Gallery Shop will show new work from Vashon Ceramic Artists during May.  The call for art is for work that is something you do not traditionally produce. VCA is encouraging artists to push their boundaries, as Akio and others have done. Consider something new, make pieces and pots that you have not done before. Go outside of your comfort zone.
