Final Pan Gallery exhibition

It's sad to hear, but Crosshatched is Pan Gallery's final program. Part exhibition and part charity auction to help raise funds to build an energy efficient kiln in Kumhaar Gram, India, Crosshatched involves 21 ceramicists including Vipoo Srivilasa, Deborah Halpern, Fiona Hiscock, Katie Jacobs and Lene Kuhl Jakobson. Each of these 21 artists have decorated mudka (traditional Indian water pots) made by potters Manori Lal and Dharmveer from India.

The auction will take place on Fri 29 April from 6-8pm with former Craft Vic Director Kevin Murray as guest speaker.

Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the village of Kumhaar Gram under the guidance of SAF.

Crosshatched opens this Tuesday 19 April and as we mentioned earlier, is Pan Gallery's final exhibition. While the gallery will be closing, we're glad to hear that the class and workshop space at Northcote Pottery Supplies will be expanding and that plans are in the pipeline for their shop, Small Pieces!
