Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield has a jam-packed weekend planned: First up is an artist talk by Lucy Feller, discussing her show of digital and customized postcards, at 3:30pm on Saturday, October 10, followed by the closing reception for the show from 4-6pm.

That closing reception also offers you a chance to get a preview of the Studio Pottery Invitational Group Show of Functional Ceramics by American Studio Potters featuring Chris Gustin.

In fact, if ceramics are your thing, this is one boffo weekend: Locally Thrown/Locally Grown is a series of 4 events over 3 days including, in addition to the preview on Saturday, a benefit dinner, demonstration, and tour of local studios in western Massachusetts. Proceeds from the events help support the ceramics program that provides work space, classes, demonstrations and workshops at IS183 Art School in Stockbridge.
