6-8 PM October 12 at MAGallery
If you are looking for a fun evening out, then grab a friend and bring your creative side to MAGallery. We will spend 2 hours glazing pre-made bisque 11 inch round platters.
Your instructor and experienced ceramic artist Lauren Martin will offer options and templates to decorate your platter, but you will have the option to glaze any design you like! You will learn how to treat this ceramic base as your canvas. So many colors will be available and, once fired, the platters will be food safe.
All fired and finished work will be available within two weeks. Pick up is at The Madison Artists Guild Gallery from Tuesday-Saturday 11-5.
Light non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be provided but feel free to bring your own adult beverage to sip on!

A trio of exceptional artists – Jodie Hutchens, Deb Rosenbury, and Shanon Schneider – share their talent with the Madison/Morgan County community in a group show titled Melange, opening September 21 at MAGallery.
Please join us for the artists' reception Friday, September 22, from 6 – 8 PM. Mingle and meet the artists while enjoying sips and bites from Harvest & Honey and live music from Jami and Terry Braley.
The exhibition will remain at MAGallery through October 21, and can be viewed and bought online at https://themadisonartistsguild.org/shop. All work is for sale.
Melange features a contemporary mix of abstract, figurative, and floral original art in a variety of mediums that invite the viewer into a world of stories told by each artist.
“Relationships unfold as my stories are shared with others. Those relationships create a dialog, a sense of connection that brings emotion, reflection … a shared understanding,” reveals Shanon Schneider. Her work evolves from a long foundation in contemporary landscapes to the abstract from which she receives joyous energy and grounding.
Deb Rosenbury’s profession for years was interior design. While operating a cottage business at what is now the Urban Art Collective, she was inspired to try painting. “Once I picked up the paint brush, there was no turning back. My hope is that my art touches the viewer’s emotions as they do mine.”
Melange artist Jodie Hutchens returns to MAGallery following a successful exhibition in 2021. Leaving behind a quarter-century career in television design and animation that includes over two decades at CNN, Jodie now embraces the creative life within the fine arts. She yearns for surprises in her work and calls out for the “beauty of imperfection.” Although her work is representational and evokes the familiar, a loose brush stroke entices the viewer to fill in the blanks with their own imagination.
MAGallery, a retail art gallery supporting local artists and authors and their talents, is operated by Madison Artists Guild, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to education and the encouragement of artistic endeavor in its members and the community.
