Ceramic Showcase 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.  Join us in 2021.

Apr 30-May 2, 2021  |  Oregon Convention Center

Join us for the 38th Annual Ceramic Showcase! This 3-day event showcases over 150 Oregon Potters Association members who make sculptures, wall art, and functional pottery for the home, garden, and work. You can find gift ideas for Mother's Day, birthdays, weddings, graduation, Father's Day, and don't forget yourself!  ** Admission is Free **


Unfortunately for many of our members, not having this sale in 2020 means a significant loss of income. If you have a favorite artist that you would like to support at this time, we encourage you to purchase their work online. Search for your favorite artist and their website using our Artist Directory. Click on their name to find links to their social media accounts, images & descriptions of their work, and more.

We will also be highlighting members who sell online through our social media pages. If you don’t already, please follow us! Ceramics Showcase Instagram and Facebook, as well as OPA Instagram and Facebook.


  • Pottery demonstrations run throughout the show
  • Special areas for children to play with clay, including hand-building with clay tools
  • High School Gallery
  • Twice Daily Drawings for $50 gift certificates, good for Ceramic Showcase purchases

Gathering of the Guilds

Six Portland-area guilds have joined forces to exhibit and sell art and find craft. All items are unique and of exceptional quality. Please join us for live demonstrations, hands-on activities and hourly door prize drawings. Free admission!

Featuring 350 Northwest artists from these guilds:

  • Creative Metal Arts Guild
  • Guild of Oregon Woodworkers
  • Oregon Glass Guild
  • Portland Bead Society
  • Portland Handweavers Guild
  • Oregon Potters Association



Ceramic Showcase Update

OPA has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. The health and safety of our members and patrons is our top priority. Working to make well-informed decisions, we took a member vote on Sunday, March 15th and members voted overwhelmingly to cancel Ceramic Showcase 2020.

We were so looking forward to having this signature event that connects us to our patrons and the community beyond. We want to thank both members and patrons for your ongoing support and we hope to see you all again next year – April 30-May 2, 2021 – at the Oregon Convention Center in Hall D.
