River Valley Potters

River Valley Potters Fall Studio Sales takes place Sept. 16-18 at three locations in Marine on St. Croix and Shafer, Minnesota, and features the work of host potters Peter Jadoonath, Guillermo and Alana Cuellar, Nick Earl, and others.

For decades, artists have flocked to the St. Croix River Valley and its many communities, large and small, to be inspired by the water, woods, flora and fauna.

This September and October, residents and visitors alike will see the intersection of art and nature on display at large community art fairs, open artists’ studios, sales and other events from Taylors Falls to River Falls.

Follow Take Me to the River 2022, a curated collection of events that celebrate “Art at Every Bend in the River” over the course of four weekends starting Sept. 10 and ending Oct. 2.
