NC Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC, Features Young Generation of Potters

The North Carolina Pottery Center (NCPC) in Seagrove, NC, will present the exhibit, New Generation of Seagrove Potters, featuring works by fifteen Seagrove area potters all under age 40, from Feb. 12 - Apr. 10, 2010.

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 participating potters 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.

The generous support of The Randolph Arts Guild, Ann and Monty Busick, and Seagrove Creations helped to make this exhibit possible.

The NCPC will host a Demonstration Day on Mar. 20, 2010, from 10am-3pm. 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 NCPC's education building.

Exhibits at the NCPC change quarterly and follow their mission: promoting public awareness and appreciation of the history, heritage, and ongoing tradition of pottery making in North Carolina. The Annual Fund raising Auction and exhibit is in April followed by a Buncombe County Pottery exhibit, which explores the history and ongoing pottery making of that county.
