Starting in 2011, Joe Pinder created the Galena Studio Tour group to bring local artists together to have art events to be held in the city of Galena during the tourist season.  The Galena Studio Tour events are self guided art tours.  We welcome customers to our open studios during these events for demonstrations, tours of the studios, and light refreshments.  While at the artists studio's, you will learn something about the creative process that the artist undertakes and their personal story behind their artwork.

Pottery is made daily at Pinder Pottery.  Wheel thrown demonstrations are done in the front window at the gallery.
