Odds and Ends

OK. Lots going on, and I thought this might be a good time to note them.

The Arts Council’s annual Soup and a Bowl will be held this Sunday, January 25th at the Arts Center on N. Queen Street in Kinston. Pick from delicious home-made soups, select a handmade pottery bowl to take home, and have a great time at the Arts Center. Check out the Artists Table, featuring a great selection of pottery donated by the Potters Gathering, a group of potters from Lenoir and Greene Counties.

The Overland Gallery’s “Beauty in the Dark” juried show will open  on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 with an artists’ reception from 4 – 7:30 PM and is open & free to the public. This event is is still developing, but the art submitted so far is quite varied and should end up being a great collection for this show. There’s usually pottery in the Overland’s shows, and plenty in the gallery any time. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in town.

And a little farther down the road…

  • Eastern NC Pottery Festival – New Bern, NC, April 11. Potters take over the North Carolina History Center at Tryon Palace, right beside the Farmer’s Market. It’s an amazing gathering.
  • BBQ Festival on the Neuse Arts Market – Kinston, NC, May 1-2. Kinston’s BBQ-centered festival turns downtown into an amazing celebration. The Arts Market, housed in an old buggy factory, offers a wide variety of great arts and crafts from area artists and artisans – including potters!

Lots of great opportunities to get out, have some fun and support your local potters. I hope to see you there.
