Support Hunger Prevention AND Buy from Amazing Alabama Artisans at Discount Prices!

Need some great Christmas presents?

The Blue Light Special Art Show will be held the 12th and 13th of December from 9-4 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday at Cahaba ClayWorks and Earthborn Studios located at 7575 Parkway Drive in Leeds—just up the hill from the new Bass Pro Shop. Celebrating its 21st anniversary, this unique event embraces the imperfect or flawed ‘seconds’ that never see the light of commerce, as well as the best each artist has to offer. You'll find mark-downs and special pricing with all the artists.

The Blue Light Special Art Show is one of Birmingham’s best-kept secrets—and longest running art shows. Last year Cahaba ClayWorks inherited the show that for the past 20 years had been hosted by The Unitarian Church of Birmingham. Blue Light means bargains--discontinued items, slightly imperfects, atypical items—all priced to move, mixed together with award-winning art. Admission to the art show is just $2 (with a portion of those proceeds going right to charity).

Join with us to support ‘Empty Bowls’ a hunger-prevention endeavor pairing local chefs and local potters (Susan Freeman, Larry Allen, Tena Payne & others) who will be providing lunch. For a nominal donation ($25) you’ll get hot soup and bread served in handmade bowls, which you keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Proceeds go to First Light Women’s Shelter.
