CLAYWORKERS' GUILD OF ILLINOIS ANNUAL SHOW

We hope you get a chance to go up to the Old Courthouse Arts Gallery and see our CWG Annual Members Show.  We have some wonderful pieces.  CJ Niehaus was our judge, this year, and she really had a hard time choosing who would get each award. She was so thoughtful in her judging that she took the time to let each person know why she had chosen their pieces. Plus we added an extra award called "The Judges Purchase Award " because CJ purchased one of the pieces in our show that she loved! Thank You CJ for judging this year!
