"New generation of Seagrove Potters" featured exhibit at NC Pottery Center
The North Carolina Pottery Center is excited to announce the opening of the upcoming exhibition: "New Generation of Seagrove Potters" featuring fifteen Seagrove area potters all under age 40. The Seagrove area has a long and rich history of pottery and this exhibit highlights the younger potters who have made a career working in clay. The show will run from February 12th through April 10th, 2010. The work of the potters will be available for sale beginning February 12, at the Artists Reception from 5:30-7:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public. The generous support of The Randolph Arts Guild, Ann and Monty Busick, and Seagrove Creations has helped to make the exhibit possible.
The NCPC will host a Demonstration Day on Saturday March 20th, from 10:00-3:00. Plan to visit the NCPC to see featured potters, Samantha Henneke, Crystal King, Travis Owens, Tommy Nichols, and Chad Brown demonstrating at the wheel in our education building. The NCPC is open to the public and will have a free of charge day in honor of this event.
The fifteen participating potters in this exhibit are as follows: Blaine Avery, Chad Brown, Jeff Dean, Samantha Henneke, Daniel Johnston, Crystal King, Matthew Luck, Stephanie Martin, Eck McCanless, Will McCanless, Tommy Nichols, Travis Owens, Hitomi Shibata, Takuro Shibata, and Jared Zehmer.
