Dan deMontreuil's Haida mural will be part of a new show of work by Fraser Valley Potters Guild members at the Newton Cultural Centre through October.

Pottery that’s on the wall

Work of Fraser Valley Potters Guild on display in Newton through the month of October.

The Fraser Valley Potters Guild has had a lot of shows over the years. But none quite like this.

For the month of October, members of the pottery group are throwing it all at the wall. Well, not throwing it, per se.

The guild is holding an exhibition of works in Surrey called Back to the Wall, wherein all the pieces – masks, murals and plates – will be wall-mounted. The show will feature a wide variety of ceramic techniques, including tile, sculpture and wheel-thrown work, as well as a range of finishes, such as terra sigilatta, stains and an array of glazes.

The guild formed in 1975 from people who were taking college ceramics classes in Surrey. The group now calls Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Surrey campus home and has members from Chilliwack to Vancouver. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in clay.

Back to the Wall takes place Oct. 2-30 at the Newton Cultural Centre gallery, 13530 72 Ave. An opening reception will be held Oct. 5, 1-3 p.m. Phone 604-594-2700.
