Community United Church of Christ, 1145 Summit Ave. in St. Paul Park, is holding its annual art fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11.

Friends and neighbors are invited to shop the fair which offers one-of-a-kind creations from local artists. Homemade soup and bread will be available for purchase to visitors while they shop.

Art and Soul Pottery artist Marlys Rucker, shown above, will be one of the artists featured. She creates both functional and creative pieces.

"This offers a balance between pieces like mugs and bowls, which are useful on a daily basis, and sculptural pieces, like my Spirit Women, which seem to evolve from the clay that can evoke emotion."
