The Arts Council of Moore County and Raven Pottery & Craft Gallery proudly presents, “East Meets West”, an international pottery exhibit and cultural exchange festival. The pottery exhibit will be on display at the Campbell House Galleries from June 3 through July 15, 2016.
For the past few years, potters from the Seagrove, NC, area have been invited to travel to the Mungyeong district of South Korea, as guests of this famous Korean pottery region, during their annual May “Harmony of Chasabal (tea bowl) Festival.” In an effort to reciprocate, the Arts Council of Moore County and Seagrove potter, Jeff Brown, have invited three well-known Korean potters from the Mungyeong district to visit Seagrove and the Sandhills area for an exchange of ideas, styles, and traditions.
Three Korean potters (Jong Pil Kim, Kyeong Hee Lee, Yeontae Park) and five Seagrove potters (Jeff Brown & Michele Hastings, Fred Johnston, David Stumpfle, Phillip Pollett) will exhibit their works along with three fiber artists (Diane Wolman, Linda Fasules, Sharon Richards) who will display their Pojagi quilts.
The Arts Council would like to thank those who have made generous contributions in support of this exhibition.
The Campbell House Galleries are located at 482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines, NC. The regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm weekdays.
