SEAGROVE — “The Collector’s Eye, Series II: Seven Perspectives,” which explores the state’s pottery heritage through examples of pottery selected by seven women from their personal collections, will be on display at the N.C. Pottery Center in Seagrove, beginning Aug. 10.
The collectors include Cynthia Brown, Hope B. Haywood, Patricia H. Hyman, Eleanor Owen, Bunny Andrews Schrooer, Peg Wiebe and one collector who chooses to remain anonymous. These collectors provide a unique and interesting perspective on North Carolina pottery, filling a special niche in preserving the state’s clay heritage.
This is the second installment of the “Collector’s Eye” series (the first included seven collectors who are men and ran from Nov. 23, 2010 through Feb. 12, 2011) that takes the viewer on a visual journey around the state’s potteries through selected collectors’ eyes. Nearly 140 objects are displayed in the exhibit, including historic and contemporary North Carolina pottery made by some of North Carolina’s finest potters.
The exhibit will open Aug. 10 and continue through Oct. 27.
An opening reception will take place at the center Friday, Aug. 17, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Admission is free to the public. A full-color catalog, including all of the exhibited pottery, will be available for purchase. Special thanks to catalog sponsor, Daisy Wade Bridges.
Four Saints Brewing Company of Asheboro (www.foursaintsbrewing.com) and the N.C. Pottery Collectors’ Guild of Raleigh (www.ncpotterycollectors.org) are sponsoring the opening reception.
Exhibitions are made possible through the generosity of the center’s membership, the John W. & Anna H. Hanes Foundation, the Mary and Elliott Wood Foundation and the Goodnight Educational Foundation. This project was supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts
