The exhibit will run through April 30.
On Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. Manabigama Pottery Center, 13270 Bishop Road. Bowling Green, will host a fundraiser that brings together many of Northwest Ohio's finest ceramic artists to raise money for the WCHS and Nature's Nursery Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation Education, in Whitehouse, that provides medical care to injured and orphaned wild animals and conducts nature education programs for children and adults.
More than a dozen ceramic artists will donate work for a silent auction with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the two charities. Artists will sell other work with 30 percent of the proceeds benefiting the two charities.
The event will also feature live music as well as wine and light refreshments.
