Upcoming Annual Exhibits/Events


Salon 561 is an annual salon-style exhibition of artwork created by the members of the Art School's faculty. It is a unique opportunity for individuals to see what professional artists in the Art School community work on outside the classroom.

The Old Church Pottery Show

The Old Church Pottery Show and Sale began in 1975 as a fundraiser for the Art School at Old Church. Long-time friends Karen Karnes and Mikhail Zakin, Art School founder, wanted to bring together their vibrant community of potters with the local community to offer an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind works of art while supporting the newly-established cultural resource. The show has grown to include up to 30 national and international artists each year, and offers more than 2,000 pots for sale over its three-day span, including functional mugs, dishware and servers, as well as sculptural works. Participating potters are invited to the show based on recommendations by their peers.


Our 48th Annual Pottery Show & Sale will take place in person December 2–4, 2022 - stay tuned! Visit for more information on participating artists, curators, and the show's history. All proceeds benefit the school.


From The Studio Classes is an annual salon-style exhibition of artworks by the Art School students. This highly anticipated exhibition fills the galleries to capacity with a vibrant installation of over 200 works of art, shown in the school's Mikhail Zakin and Café galleries.
