The IPFW Ceramics Club is having a pottery sale next week! Wednesday, April 11th & Thursday, April 12th from 9am to 5pm by the bookstore in Walb Student Union. There are so many incredibly talented students at IPFW and this is a great opportunity to purchase unique handmade pottery for a reasonable price with the bonus of helping to support the IPFW Ceramics Club!

While you're at the IPFW pottery sale (and also if you don't go to the pottery sale) you should definitely stop by the Visual Arts building to see the Senior Fine Arts BFA Exhibition! Some of the students who have work in the pottery sale are also graduating this spring and have a beautiful gallery of their work currently on display from April 2nd to May 4th. It is a very unique exhibition because all four graduates are women and all four are three-dimensional artists. Go check it out!

Join us at Artlink on Wednesday, April 18 from 6-9PM for Collaboratorium!
Collaboratorium is a weekly artmaking session run by Italian Friend ArtRuckus that brings together artists, musicians, performers, and writers to create collaborative, improvised works in a wide range of mediums, including visual art, music, video, and performance art. Collaboratorium sessions take place in a relaxed atmosphere that encourages participants to focus on the processes of collaboration, experimentation, and improvisation.
For the April Collaboratorium, we'll be getting in touch with our sense of touch. We'll be collaborating on clay sculptures that are created by hand--while blindfolded! Each artist will have a set amount of time to work on a piece before handing it off to another blindfolded artist. As always, all supplies will be provided. All you have to do is show up and play with us!
