Story Slam


The Artists Hand!


Potters Studio Tour '14

Gallery Exhibition

What's Your Story? 



Every month The Artists Hand Gallery & Espresso Bar will host


The Old Saw Story Slam.


What's a Story Slam you ask? Well it's a laid-back story telling competition.

The criteria is simple,

  1. Prepare a story that fits a theme
  2. Tell it in 5 minutes
  3.  It is "true"
  4.  It has a beginning, middle & an end.  


Come in to The Artists Hand Gallery/Espresso bar on the 3rd Friday in October  (10/17/14), 6-8 and tell your story to our audience (made up of many other aspiring story tellers).  They vote anonymously and at the end of the night the winner gets a gift certificate for the espresso bar.


The theme for October is

"Ghost/Horror Stories".


We had a great time in September telling stories! We had 9 story tellers, of all walks of life, and several potential story tellers sitting in. So, get it together and plan on stopping in to tell your story.
