Awards will be presented during the opening night.
- The CGA! Salon & Ceramics Show – This second juried exhibition will immediately follow the CGA! Juried Show and be held throughout the month of June 2015. Pieces will also be exhibited at Elder Gallery. Work for these shows will be chosen by Larry Elder, the gallery owner and founder of CGA! Ceramic pieces will be chosen by Peter Callas.
