"New Gallery - Again!"

For those who have been coming to the White Oak Pottery Gallery, you may remember that we initially opened the gallery in an addition on our house. Later we moved it to a new building near the studio and kiln shed. Well guess what? We moved it back to the sunroom at the house. The new space is a little larger and better lit, as well as more easily accessible.
