We all know Shawn Evans has pretty sweet hands when it comes to making a lacrosse ball do amazing things. This past weekend, though, he put those hands to work creating art of another kind. Evans, along with fellow Lakers Brad and Scott Self, joined other well-known local citizens for Celebrity Pots. The event is part of a fundraiser for the Art School of Peterborough and the pots the boys made will be available for bidding in the 17th annual Fall Art Auction in the city’s Market Hall on December 1. As with most things in the Boro, there was already a lacrosse connection between the game and the Art School. As the Peterborough Examiner points out, art school director Jenni Johnston’s dad, Jim, is a former player and coach. “We grew up with her and it was something different and fun to do,” Scott Self told the Examiner. “The biggest challenge doing this was the precision it took.” You can see more pictures of the Lakers and other celebrity potters in Brianna Gosselin’s facebook album of the event.
