We want to thank everyone for volunteering your time and making this year’s Art Bash so successful! We had such a great time!

Julia Galloway Success:

  • Thank you everyone for all your help with Julia! There were a lot of attendees and the high volume was maintained throughout her lectures.
  • Julia’s demonstration was covered in the Alligator! If you are interested, stop by the H.O.T. Clay board and read the article!
  • Nan was on top of it and has already sent a “Thank You” card to Julia on the UF ceramic communities behalf, but with this in mind, if you had a studio meeting with Julia, it might be a nice idea to send her a letter expressing your experience and thanking her for her awesome demo! Charity has her contact information.
