For the second year, Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts will participate in American Craft Week, a project of the Craft Retailers and Artists for Tomorrow.  At Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts (new website coming SOON!), we will celebrate ALL month, starting with 4th Friday on September 23.  We usually feature one artist every month, but for this occasion, we 'll showcase ALL 19 of our artists on the two prominent tables at the entrance of our gallery.

We'll unveil our featured artwork on 4th Friday from 6 - 9 PM in The Cotton Exchange with beverages and refreshments.  In honor of American Craft Week (ACW), we will also collect names/phone numbers for prize drawings to take place every week throughout the month of October.
