Artist Go Potty
by Lee Cox
As we get older we get more set in our ways unless you are the Logan West Community Art Share Alliance.
The Alliance celebrated their sixth anniversary at their Orr Crt location with the official opening of their new pottery shed funded by Logan City Council.
According to co-ordinator Steven Watson the expansion has been driven by demand for the services of the Alliance.
“We really needed the new space for extra pottery wheels,” Steven said.
“Our regular classes keep growing in size and with our very popular KRANK school holiday program booking out very quickly we can now cater for more students.
“And we get the opportunity to repurpose the old pottery space to expand our other arts like glass blowing. We are the only arts collective in Logan to offer glass blowing.”
The anniversary and opening were celebrated with cake and a sausage sizzle. Former Councillor for Division 7, Laurie Smith, who played an important role in advocating for the new pottery shed, spoke of his own passion for the arts and attends classes at the Alliance regularly.
