Participating Artists

To make the Art Junction Chili Throwdown happen, the Visual Arts Center of Richmond needs lots and lots and lots of handmade, ceramic bowls. Members of VisArts’ Clay Guild and students in our clay classes spend hours throwing, firing and glazing bowls for the event. When you buy a ticket to the Art Junction Chili Throwdown, you’ll take home a ceramic bowl by one of these incredible potters:
