Off Center: An International Ceramic Competition. Blue Line Arts’ annual competition highlights more than 70 works of art created by some of the world’s finest ceramic artists.

Juried winners will be announced on August 20 during an Opening Reception from 4-8 p.m. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. or by appointment.
