A few months back, I was contacted by an old friend from my Cleveland days. He was curious if I would like to show my pottery at a new gallery in Ohio which was being developed by his wife. The idea came about as a retail space next to their framing gallery became available so they decided to expand their current business and create a print and craft gallery. Run by Lori Drugan, the gallery draws from a rich collection of mostly 20th century prints and a core group of ceramics people which includes Tom Radka's raku pottery as well as my own. The gallery is spacious and well thought out with unfettered displays and plenty of breathing room to contemplate the works displayed.
On Friday, I missed a call from Cris Drugan as I was busy trimming pots, he called to let me know the gallery was finally open and the first sales in the new gallery were two of my pots. I was of course very pleased to hear that, especially considering it has been a number of years since I have been represented in that area. For anyone in the general Akron, Ohio area, the gallery is located in Fairlawn, Ohio and is run by Lori (and Cris) Drugan;
