Mount Up For A (Re)Treat…

May 8, 2014

Not sure if you all are aware but the Mary Anderson Center for the Arts located at Mount St. Francis in Indiana, just a short hop across the river from downtown Louisville will be having their first potters’ retreat this summer from June 11th – 14th, with Adam Field, Kristen Kieffer and Matt Long as the inaugural presenters. This three day demonstration based workshop will showcase three highly regarded ceramic artists.

potters' retreat

The Mary Anderson Center for the Arts is located on the grounds of Mt. St. Francis, IN. We are just across the river from Louisville, KY and a short 25 minute drive from the Louisville airport on 450 acres of beautiful woods, fields and a lake. The bug and I have spent many afternoons walking around the lake on the hiking paths and simply enjoying the quiet peaceful landscape.

If you get a hankerin’ to attend and/or need more information they have a new website you can check out. For general info click here.

And there’s info on the schedule here.

As you may know, my buddy Steven Cheek is in charge of putting on this event and it promises to be a wonderful clay-centered treat. Here’s a quote from Steven… “I am very excited about this workshop and I would love to have a great turnout. I have created a facebook event for this and I am in the process of the final big push for this event. I have extended the early registration out to May 15. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at stevengcheek(at)” Here’s pic of Adam doing his thing…

And of course Mr. Matt Long…


So anyway, if you’re keen on a workshop to attend, this has a bit of something for everyone to be held in an idyllic natural setting. And maybe, if you’re lucky, you can go swimming with a friar!
