The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation’s Perspectives: Georgia Pottery Invitational opened Aug. 28, marking its return after the COVID-19 pandemic caused a hiatus last year. This is the show’s 19th year, and it will continue through Sept. 12. 

Shopping hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, including Sundays. Admission and parking are free. 

The work of 50 Georgia potters are showcased, and over 4,000 pieces of pottery are featured. The potters priced their own work. A total of 65 percent of the profits went to the potter and 35 percent went to OCAF. 

“The idea was to raise money for OCAF but to provide a place for artists to sell their work,” said Sheila Chrzan, the event coordinator of Perspectives: Georgia Pottery Invitational.
