Raleigh, NC - October 22, 2016

October 22nd 2016, from 3pm to 6pm., ceramic artists Marina Bosetti, Liz Kelly, and Gretchen Quinn host their Fall Open House. Located at 1201 W. Lenoir St., they celebrate their new fall lines of work and the tireless efforts of Apiopolis, a Raleigh-based nonprofit urban bee sanctuary. Apiopolis' mission is to engage with the vibrant urban ecology of Raleigh by promoting natural, sustainable beekeeping practices. Please help support Apiopolis!

You are invited to the Fall Open House to kick off the holiday season. Join the artists and Apiopolis for information on sustainable beekeeping, food, refreshments, a raffle, throwing demonstrations and some pickin' and grinnin' fun. Please feel free to bring a friend and bring an instrument! Raffle revenue and 15% of all ceramic sales will be donated, and Apiopolis founder, Alice Hinman, will be there with her mobile hive answering questions about her organization and beekeeping. Honey, pollinator seed bombs and encaustics will also be for sale.

About Apiopolis and the Potters

Apiopolis seeks to work within the vibrant urban ecology of the City of Raleigh and its surrounding landscapes by promoting natural and sustainable beekeeping practices, planting healthy pollinator habitat, supporting community awareness and involvement, creating green jobs and forming dynamic collaborations that span disciplines and boundaries. Apiopolis partners with the City of Raleigh, local businesses, farmers, gardeners, universities and schools, beekeeping organizations, nonprofits, the arts community and individuals to support their efforts and to better protect and strengthen honeybees and other pollinators.

Liz Kelly, Gretchen Quinn and Marina Bosetti form a trio of like-minded, yet stylistically diverse potters working closely together in their downtown Raleigh studio. Their ceramic works range from functional tableware to large-scale installation tile. The three potters share an open design studio that also showcases their finished art.
