Opening Reception of Current Effects: Contemporary Woodfiring in WNC
June 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the opening reception of Current Effects: Contemporary Woodfiring in WNC June 2 from 5pm – 8pm at the Refinery Creator Space. Curated by Josh Copus.
The mountains of North Carolina harbor a rich history of woodfired ceramics that forms the foundation of the region’s vibrant contemporary practice. Western North Carolina is home to some of the field’s top artists and also to a number of valuable young voices that continue to push the field of woodfired ceramics in new directions. This exhibition speaks to the diversity and strength of woodfiring in our region by bringing together established and emerging makers alike to highlight the quality of what’s being made in the mountains today. As we survey the state of woodfiring in Western North Carolina, this exhibition clearly conveys that the future is as bright as our past.
