Weizenblatt Gallery presents: Potters of Madison County Through November 6
Mars Hill University’s Weizenblatt Gallery will host an exhibition of works by the Potters of Madison County. The Potters, all living and/or working in Madison County, North Carolina, all have unique styles, all of which have been carefully developed and widely recognized for their exceptional beauty and quality.
In the last decade, the quiet mountain towns and townships of Madison County, North Carolina have attracted an ever growing community of artists and craftspeople. Madison County’s rich rural and agricultural history and its inhabitants’ collective respect for tradition and craft make a natural setting for the production of handmade functional and sculptural ceramics. The Potters of Madison County was created in order to unite, acknowledge and support the skilled and diverse group of men and women currently creating work in Madison County, North Carolina.
The Potters consists of Julie Covington, Josh Copus, Becky Lloyd, Jim and Shirl Parmentier, Rob Pulleyn, Barry Rhodes, Joey Sheehan, and Shane Mickey. Their styles, methods, and output are as varied as they are beautiful. Julie graduated with a degree in Fine Art from UNC Asheville and “aims to create simple, sturdy tableware that looks and feels pretty good and is equally at home on an intimate dinner table or on the floor of an old pickup truck”. Josh also has a fine arts degree from UNCA and co-founded Clayspace Co-Op to promote members’ artistic growth and success. Becky’s work features delicate and intricate black and white patterns called sgraffito. Jim and Shirl have been making decorative ceramics together for over 35 years. Rob creates works that are sculptural, often with a hidden functional ability. Barry’s small sculptural works are in many collections, including the Mint Museum in Charlotte. Joey’s decorative work can be functional, figurative, or both at the same time. Shane’s work is rooted in functional design while expressing ideas of spontaneity. All the Potters have had their work in galleries, museums, and exhibits around the country.
The exhibition will run from Wednesday, October 23rd, through Thursday, November 14th. There will be a reception on Wednesday, November 6, from 6-9 pm. Weizenblatt Gallery is in the Moore Fine Arts Building 79 Cascade Street, Mars Hill. It is open 10-4, Monday through Friday, and admission is always free. For more information, contact Skip Rohde, the gallery director, at 828.273.6476.
Madison County Arts Council presents "Swept Away Broom Exhibit" Through December 9
The broom has rarely been considered an object of importance, but upon reflection, the broom takes on a whole new significance, symbolizing a common thread which binds together the peoples of the world in the common pursuit of improving the quality of their lives.
Each of the XX brooms is constructed from materials indigenous to the country of its origin. Some of the brooms are pretty and others are strictly pragmatic.
Thailand- delicately designed handles and brushes
England- witches broom for cleaning cobblestone streets
Canada- advanced technology/leisure time, curling broom
North Carolina- long, thin brooms for sweeping ceiling cobwebs
This international exhibit of brooms illustrates the universal range of human’s capability of adapting to and utilizing the resources of their environment in fulfilling that need.
According to collector Tom Bailey, “I met my friend Vance Engleman during the summer of 1967 in Chicago. We were both participating in a community revitalization in the inner City. I had just finished my sophomore year in high school and was highly impressionable. Vance related his recent trip to India and showed me a couple of brooms he brought back. He said he was heading back on another trip later that year and told me he would try to bring some more back. Later in December of 1967, I headed to South America for 1 1/2 years. I decided to look for some brooms, and so the collection began. I would continue to collect brooms over the years during my various trips to South/North/Central America and Europe. Over time, I would enlist friends during my Graduate School days to bring me back a broom from their travels around the world. Vance passed away in 2005 and left his collection to me.”
Opening reception Thursday October 17 2019 5-8pm
Exhibit runs through December 9 2019
