- SUPPORT US
We regret to announce that due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Marion and Polk County, the Willamette Art Center will not be holding its annual EMPTY BOWLS SALE. We wish to thank all of the many volunteers and artists that have worked tirelessly to make over 1200 bowls and prepare for this year’s sale. While we are disappointed we do hope that you will mark your calendar and plan to join us for next year’s sale which will be even bigger than ever.
Please take proper care of yourselves and stay safe. Only by following the guidelines laid out by the state can we hope to reduce the numbers of cases which continue to rise every day.
Thank you for your support and we hope to see you next year.

Open Studio Passes are intended for folks who do not need basic instruction about how to use clay and/or clay equipment. If you can work safely and independently on your own ceramics and pottery, a studio pass is right for you!
All of our Studio Passes entitle you to use the studio during our regular business hours. This includes kiln firing, glazes, and the use of all equipment.
Meetings are held at the Willamette Art Center on the Oregon State Fairgrounds. Everyone is welcome to attend!
