Outpost Gallery presents a show by Polly Gott titled "These Mountains" March 5 to March 28
Polly Gott, a 1958 graduate of Cornell University, and a 1959 graduate of the Brooklyn Museum Art School, has been aweing the world for decades with her refreshing on-site watercolors. In 1961 she moved to Madison County for the music and subsistence farming, raised gardens, animals and two children, made bark and white oak baskets and pottery, and built a log house and several out-buildings with her husband Peter. In 1975 she began watercolor painting seriously, after participating in 25 workshops with various ground-breaking artists. She eventually opened a studio in a log cabin built by her son on the side of the Sugarloaf Mountain, where hundreds of paintings are now exhibited for sale. She is known for her free-style brush strokes, her mountain landscapes and her impressionistic renditions of traditional buildings.
The show opens with a reception inside Outpost Thursday, March 5 from 5 to 8 pm. A closing reception is planned in tandem with THird Thursday Marshall March 19, also from 5 to 8 pm.

Flowers and Clay, second annual Copus pottery home show and farm tour July 18 to 19, 2020
Spend the Day with Us — Or the Weekend
Come be part of our extended family as we open our business homes to the public for the first time ever. Flowers and Clay is an annual collaboration between Josh Copus Pottery and Carolina Flowers — also known as Josh and Emily Copus.
Walk inside a 27-foot pottery kiln and pick a dahlia from the garden. See how wild clay is made and tour the production farm where we grow tens of thousands of flowers each year. Dine with us on Saturday night — we’ll have pizza from our woodfire oven with herbs from the farm and garden.
Plan to stay awhile. We’ll have games and activities. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy our mountain cove, or make a day trip to one of the nearby hikes or swimming spots. Explore downtown Marshall while you’re in the neighborhood, and be sure to walk past the Old Marshall Jail — our other creative business endeavor.
There is no cost to attend this event. Flowers and pottery will be for sale on site.
Check back for additional details, schedules and collaboration announcements.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Farm tours will take place at specific times only. The farm is short drive or walk from the pottery kiln complex, where the main event will be held. There are extensive gardens for you to enjoy at the kiln complex, but the bulk of our production happens at other sites.
