The show was organized by Andrew Urlie, a fine art potter. The show featured art pottery, photography, painting and hand-crafted items.

Two artisan brothers, Keith and Kevin McKay from Cassel, displayed a fascinating array of items fashioned from natural sources such as oak and manzanita bowls; a hand-wrought fly fishing coat rack; pine cone ornaments and fan-pulls; and ink pens made from ten varieties of wood, rope, pinecones, and even horse manure!

The event was well attended and vendors reported satisfying sales.
