Authors Michael Highfill and Mike and Kathy Finley of the recently released "Cannelton, Indiana Potteries" will be available and have copies of their book, displays and items for sale.

They will also offer free pottery appraisals for those curious about the value and authenticity of their clay pieces.

Music throughout the day will include "Salty Dawgs," an acoustic variety duo who will play from 2 to 5 p.m. Jazz musician Monte Skelton of Evansville will perform from 6 to 8 p.m.

Local artisan Nita Claise will have pottery for sale and display in addition to pottery demonstrations.

Ten-inch pizzas will be available for $8 and $10 depending on chosen toppings.

Artist Mickey McMahon of Tell City will display and sell silver-clay jewelry. McMahon creates sculpted works of silver clay paste that are fired, resulting in finished pieces that are nearly 99 percent silver.
