Spring Show Annual Wrap Up Potluck Meeting

Hosted by Ashley Heitzman at Civilian Studios 

6pm - Come early for a Studio & Building Tour 
7pm- Meeting & Potluck to begin

It's Here! The Annual Potluck and Spring Show Wrap Up Meeting. Come join us for food, fun, a report on the success of the 2013 Spring Show, and lively discussion about plans for the 2014 show.

Civilian Studio's is a large warehouse that Ashley Heitzman, guild member and designer behind Ashley May Jewelry, co-founded with another artist to bring affordable work space to Portland's emerging makers.
Located in an industrial sector situated between the Willamette River and Interstate Ave, about a mile north of the Oregon Convention Center, we will meet, eat and discuss the outcome of our 2013 Spring Show and plans for 2014!

Parking is available on the street, in front of the building (nose in style) and at our neighbor, Indow Windows parking lot, located on Interstate Ave just south of the turn for Lewis Ave.

Hope to see you all there!
