Watershed’s annual Salad Days fundraiser draws hundreds of art appreciators to campus for a summer celebration of handmade ceramic work and local food. For each year’s event, a Salad Days Artist-in-Residence produces hundreds of plates or shallow bowls from terracotta clay. During the celebration, guests choose a plate to take home and enjoy a delicious picnic lunch. The Salad Days Artist’s plates serve as the primary feature of the day and many event attendees return year after year to collect each new design.
Watershed selects a Salad Days Artist annually to create plates or shallow bowls for the following year’s Salad Days.
