Save the Bees benefitSpecial show buzz: To help save the bees, one of our resident artists is donating the proceeds from all her sales at the Holiday Show and Sale to the Natural Resources Defense Council's Save the Bees Campaign.

Her collection will include a variety of bee-related pieces, including candle holders with beeswax candles and soap dishes with bars of soap made from honey.

Come visit us in November for an exhibition of Alex Pratt's inspired pots


November exhibition of Alex Pratt's sumptuous pots

Yourist Studio Gallery is delighted to feature the works of master potter and Yourist instructor Alex Pratt throughout November. Alex's sumptuous pots are beautifully thrown and always inspiring. Alex uses sgraffito, carving, and slip inlay on porcelain vessels, placing stylized natural forms in a geometric framework. Alex is inspired by the freely-applied linear decoration of Oribe pottery, and the tightly interlocking compositional style of Cubist painting and sculpture.
