american southPottery of the U.S. South : A Living Tradition
Opening
Friday October 24, 2014
Pottery of the U.S. South: A Living Tradition presents traditional stoneware from North Carolina and northern Georgia—current works characterized by earthy local clays and surprising effects of wood firing. Rooted in British and German ceramic traditions and once crucial to Southern agrarian life, Southern pottery today remains vital, a distinctive art form through which potters actively engage with their region in ways both old and new. As museum visitors explore these ways, they are invited to consider for themselves the dynamics of a living tradition. The public is cordially invited to attend the FREE opening reception with live music by Round Mountain and refreshments by the Museum of New Mexico Women's Board (Photo: Wood-fired, salt-glazed jugs by Chad Brown (left, 2011) and his great-great-grandfather W.
