Hudgens Center for the Arts presents Collections in Clay. The Works of Eight Georgia Artists & Their Collections

Hudgens Center for the Arts in Georgia presents Collections in Clay. The Works of Eight Georgia Artists & Their Collections, an exhibition on view through December 22, 2012.


Tom Coleman. Electric Blue Vase, collection of Vernon Smith

This diverse exhibit showcases eight Georgia clay artists, who are also collectors. Some started collecting before they started working with clay, and some were potters/sculptors and over time acquired their collection. Each of the eight will have two of their own works and six to eight pieces from their collection represented in this exhibit. The collection pieces are extremely varied, ranging from folk art face jugs to modern ceramic sculpture.

Curated by Vernon Smith, Ceramics Studio Manager at The Hudgens, the show includes collected pieces and works by Rick Berman, Tina Cox, Glenn Dair, Nancy Green, Richard and Dinah Stonis, Becky Strickland, and Smith himself. All of the collected pieces will be displayed alongside the artists’ own work, and visitors can judge for themselves the influence their collections have had on the artists. – www.thehudgens.org
