Pottery by Jason Abide

 Jason is a local potter and ceramics instructor at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro. He learned an appreciation for well made pottery through a fascination with the process for making it, particularly the potter’s wheel. He finds the transformations that clay undergoes, and the different possibilities for creation and alteration in each phase to be fascinating and inspiring. He endeavors to share his enthusiasm for this medium and this craft through the pottery he makes and the classes he teaches for children and adults.

Back Gallery:
“A Passion for Nature”  Fine Art Paintings by Chapel Hill artist, Joan Meade



"My passion is for the natural world, and I am especially drawn to water, rocks and trees in all their amazing variety. I find the medium that best conveys these wonders is sculptural acrylics. I begin with a charcoal sketch then build up the surface with modeling paste and gels, emphasizing the contrast in texture that I observe. I then apply the color to capture the richness of detail and the play of light on the surfaces. My landscapes and seascapes are inspired by my travels and enhanced by my imagination." 
Meet the artists and enjoy complimentary refreshments during the Chapel Hill Carrboro 2nd Friday Artwalk. Friday, April 10 from 6-9pm.
