The second in the Carson City Chamber of Commerce’s Meet the Artist series will take place between 2-4 p.m. Saturday at the Artisan Showcase located at 1900 S. Carson St.
Featured artist will be Linda Ritter, owner of Pinyon Pottery, who’s going to use her portable potter’s wheel to demonstrate how she turns a lump of clay into a functional art piece. She will reveal her love working with clay during the past year, embarking on her second career after retiring from government after 30 years of service.
On display will be various previously “thrown” art pieces. Part of the proceeds will go to support the Capital City Circles Initiative, the cooperative community effort to elevate people out of poverty.
Ritter also is creating a special pottery line for our furry friends to be unveiled Saturday. Part of the proceeds will be donated to CASI to add to their funds to support the new animal shelter.
Refreshments will be served.
