Well, it is once again time for the WAC to begin planning for this year’s sale at the Salem Saturday Market. We are asking for more pottery donations to support your art studio. Last year showed a reduction of over $50,000 in gross income from 2019 to 2020, so we need to pick up some of the difference and we need your help to do that. The studio will provide the clay and firing for all donations and in addition, should you wish to donate pottery you have already made, the WAC will replace any firing tickets you used as well as the clay.
Also, this year we are going to set aside a couple of Saturdays for you to sell your own pottery. We will hold a couple of meetings to discuss how this will work in the very near future.
In addition, we will hold at least two sales this summer to sell Empty Bowls, so we are encouraging those of your that are accomplished potters to begin making more bowls and dishes.
We are very excited about this year’s changes and believe you will be as well. Again, we wish to thank all of you that have given so generously of your time and talent to secure the future of the WAC. It is only because of your unselfish generosity that we have been able to remain open and solvent while many others have not been so fortunate.
Your Board and Staff
