If it is March, it must be Mermaid Month at Ventura Harbor. Mythological creatures come alive and the Ventura County Potters’ Guild (VCPG) Gallery is jumping into the water for this fun event. Mermaids (and Mermen) and the sea creatures they befriend will appear adorning all forms of ceramic surfaces. Being at the beach has its benefits!
On March 21 from 1-4 PM, featured artist Ellen Williams will demonstrate how she creates her fanciful, feminine ceramic creations. Originally a painter, Ellen transitioned to clay as her canvass. Using a watercolor approach to her work, she is able to balance serious art with whimsey.
Gallery members will also have theme related art work for sale. Don’t miss out on a chance to get a glimpse of, or take home, a real ceramic mermaid.
The VCPG Gallery is located at 1567 Spinnaker Drive, Suite 105 in Ventura Harbor. The Gallery is open seven days a week from 11-6. For more information visit www.venturapottersguild.org.
