Brimming with Unique Hand-made Bowls and Art

The Hoffman Center Art Gallery closes 2017 with a gallery brimming of unique original hand-made visual and ceramic art for the holidays. 

Join us for nibbles and sips, 
December 1, 3-5pm, Artists’ Reception

The not-for-profit Hoffman Gallery is located at Division and Laneda and will be open from 3-5pm every Friday and Saturday through December. 

The December show “Confluence of Color” features monoprints from seven local artists, a walloping collection of colorful ceramic bowls from Lilliputian to Jumbo from nine north coast potters ranging Hebo to Astoria, and new oil paintings from Chris Biegun. 

In addition, limited copies of the Word and Image book are available –  featuring partnered original written and visual art – heart-stoppingly delicious for the person who needs no “things” but to enjoy the alchemy of creativity. 

Also…. in case you haven’t heard… the Hoffman Center for the Arts is a local not-for-profit serving the north coast community with affordable accessible engagement in creating arts: Ceramics, Writing, Painting, Exploring, and Viewing.
