Where: Pottery Place Plus, 203 N Washington St. Spokane, WA 99201

Ruthie Franks is a Spokane gourd artist whose vision for growing, drying and creating beautiful pieces started over 20 years ago.

Ruthie says she is finally beginning to understand the vagaries associated with growing the perfect art gourd, which is harder than the decision of what to do with it once grown. In her own words, “I have tried to bring out the organic beauty of my gourds, each has its own beauty that is waiting to be expressed.”

Ruthie will be the PPP Guest Artist for the month of July ~ stop by the gallery in the historic Liberty Building on First Friday July 7th from 5-9pm to meet the artist and enjoy her beautiful carved & painted gourd art!
