2018 Gallery Series – WACK: Collaborate, Cooperate, Create!

August 3-25, 2018
Opening Reception: August 3, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Allied Arts of Whatcom County’s 2018 Gallery Series welcomes back WACK, Whatcom’s Artists of Clay and Kiln. WACK is a non-profit organization dedicated to ceramic artists from Whatcom County with a passion for creative expression with clay. We are excited to present this exhibit, honoring clay’s malleable shapes and forms.

This year, we challenged members to team up with other artists and create something new together for at least some of the pieces. Some are partnering with other ceramic artists and some teaming up with artists in other mediums. So we should have some interesting new work!
