Pots in the Piedmont Opening Reception
The piedmont region of North Carolina has become a destination for pottery lovers and collectors. The area is rich with a vast and diverse population of potters who embrace and expand upon the history and tradition of ceramics in the south. Our featured exhibition in October, Pots in the Piedmont, showcases a group of more than a dozen ceramicists and potters, from Raleigh to Seagrove, who share an emphasis on functional form in both sculptural and practical pieces. Among the artists presented at FRANK this fall, some continue to create using traditional forms that are strongly rooted in the undeniable style of NC pottery, and others find inspiration towards a more contemporary aesthetic.
