Mythology Meets Archetype @ The Northern Clay Center

Mar 14 to Apr 27
Mythology Meets Archetype is
curated by Heather Nameth Bren, NCC exhibition committee member,
professor, and ceramic artist. It will feature the artworks of Christie
Brown (London, UK), Philip Eglin (London, UK), Michelle Erickson
(Yorktown, VA), Bonnie Marie Smith (Kingston, NY), and Vipoo Srivilasa
(Melbourne, AU). The works in the exhibition will respond to personal,
cultural, and religious myths that have grown out of the desire to know
(or the posture to know) the unknowable. Symbols of the god figure, the
mother figure, the self, and the demon have been used to describe
ancient and contemporary narratives. This archetypal cast of characters
is employed as agents of one’s personal or cultural identity, spiritual
devotion, and even power to control the masses.

Vipoo Srivilasa will be in residence at Northern Clay Center prior to
the exhibition working with community members on a collaborative
project. Stay tuned for more information!

27th Annual North Carolina Potters Conference


The North Carolina Potters Conference is a premier ceramics
conference.  Through its history the conference has featured the some of
the best ceramics artists from around the world.  This conference
centers on simultaneous demonstrations cultivating a dialogue of
techniques, concepts, and experiences between the artists and the
audience.  Unlike other conferences, you do not have to pick and choose
with workshops to attend.  All the demonstrations and presentations are
scheduled for the entire group. Potters at any skill level will come
away with new ideas and inspiration to improve their work.  Even
non-potters have found the weekend a worthwhile introduction into the
world of ceramics.
