Begin with a teapot. That’s the simple underlying premise for a group exhibition at Featherstone Center for the Arts opening Saturday, Sept. 6, entitled Teapots and More.

“The main thing needs to be a teapot,” ceramacist Washington Ledesma said, explaining that each artist who offers a teapot for the exhibit may bring up to four more pieces for display. If many artists bring many pieces, Mr. Ledesma hopes the show can spill out under a tent on the Featherstone grounds.

He expects more than two dozen artists to participate. Students and novice potters are welcome to exhibit with teachers and professional ceramicists. The emphasis is on artists who work with clay on the Vineyard.

Mr. Ledesma hopes Teapots and More will evolve into an annual ceramics show.

Items in the exhibition will be available for sale.

An opening reception is set for Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m. and the show will continue for six days, through Friday, Sept. 12.
