Another One Bites the Dust

More and more, buildings are being converted to condos in Long Island City. While that's great for ameliorating the housing shortage here in western Queens, it's sad to me when a bunch of artists are kicked out. LIC has many buildings full of artist studios and slowly their buildings are being converted. This is happening to the building housing Queensboro Potters. As a result, they're having one last holiday sale before things are shut down. Here's the info:

Eleven ceramic artists will have work available to sell. If you're looking for original holiday gifts for an art lover (or just need a nice handmade serving bowl) come on by.

Thursday, December 7, 4-8 pm
Friday, December 8, 4-8 pm
Saturday, December 9, 12-5 pm (live music 2-5 pm)
Sunday, December 10: 12-5 pm
