North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC, Offers Pam Owens Lecture About Traditional Women Potters Exhibit – Feb. 2, 2017


Please join us for a slide presentation at the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC, on Feb. 2, 2017, from 6-8pm by Pamela Lorette Owens of Jugtown Pottery.


Owens will discuss one of the North Carolina Pottery Center’s current exhibitions, “North Carolina’s Traditional Women Potters,” which she curated. “North Carolina’s Traditional Women Potters” is on exhibit through Feb. 11, 2017. The exhibition is the culmination of a study and lecture presented by Owens at the Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival, in Hickory, NC, in 2015.

The twentieth century saw the emergence of women potters from the lineage of European settlers, and while Native American women had been making pottery here for thousands of years, their names and work were definitively recorded through writing and images only as the century progressed. This exhibition is an examination of North Carolina women who were established potters by 1975 and who came from or chose to work and learn through a traditional approach. The focus is on women who made and/or decorated pots, but all of the women who worked daily in potteries were integral to the process.

A potluck at 6pm will begin the evening’s events, followed by the slide talk at 7pm. Come out for a great night of food and community! This presentation is free and open to the public.

The NCPC Educational Building is located behind the NC Pottery Center at 233 East Avenue, Seagrove, 27341.
