Hundreds clog museum gallery to look at pots
Isn't that a cool headline? And it's true. At least 600 people came out Friday night to the opening of "Clay: Works by Cape Cod Potters," and not just for the free wine, hummus, chips and grapes. The gallery was crowded from 5:30 to 7:30 with people looking at - or trying to look at - more than 200 pots by potters from all over Cape Cod.
In the second photo down, slipware potter Ron Geering of Falmouth (goatee and black turtleneck) contemplates another potter's work in the midst of the crowd.
Both potters and people connected with the Cape Cod Museum of Art were amazed by the numbers. So, enough amazement. I'll put some photos on this post and then head up to pack bags. We're off on vacation for a week. More when we get back.
