First Friday Downtown Art Walk 
  September 5th, 6pm - 8pm    

Wintergreen Arts Center is proud to present the amazing talents of PIBQ as our featured musical guest during our September First Friday Art Walk reception, September 5, from 6-8p.m.  
 Wintergreen is also thrilled to be showing the beautiful pottery of Cindy Snell for the month of September.
Straight from the Earth Pottery was established in 1995 on our farm in Northern Maine. As a domestic potter I use the ancient technique of working without a wheel. The majority of my pieces are inspired by the nature that surrounds our farm. The beauty and individuality of each lump of clay if very different and gives itself up to be shaped and glazed creating many variations. I often make my own molds and mix my own glaze so each piece varies in color as it does in nature. 

"I am committed to the gift that I am given so as a working potter I understand the challenges involved in turning a piece of earth into a desired shape, then through fire into a useful object. With skill and prayer comes a piece of functional reality."

Handcrafted stoneware pottery is durable enough for everyday use and yet can compliment your special occasions. They are food, oven, and dishwasher safe (unless marked).

Whether looking for a piece for yourself or a gift for family and friends, Straight from the Earth has the unique selection you've been looking for. 

Wintergreen exists for you and because of you!
