March 9, 2018

Today, the Historical Association of Catawba County announced that the 21st annual Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival (CVP&AF) will take place Saturday, Mar. 24, at the Hickory Metro Convention Center. This acclaimed event brings together 110 potters and vendors from across the southeast to exhibit and sell their unique artistry and craftsmanship, including historical pottery, textiles, folk art, baskets and furniture.

Saturday’s festival also includes pottery videos, live demonstrations and a special lecture and exhibit: “The Hilton Family Potters from Craft Art,” presented by Dr. Terry Zug. The Hilton family of potters worked in the Catawba Valley from the late 1800s into the early twenty-first century (nearly 300 years!). The exhibit, curated by Dr. Zug, demonstrates the family’s skills and products as they changed over time – from traditional jars & jugs to sculptural forms like dolls & log cabins. The lecture is at 11am and is included in the Saturday ticket price.

The CVP&AF will also host the Friday Night Preview Party on Mar. 23, 2018, from 7-10pm at the Hickory Metro Convention Center featuring a Southern supper, cash bar and live music.

To be eligible, tickets must be purchased by the Mar. 16 deadline. The raffle winner will be announced during Friday’s event.

The CVPA&F began in 1998 with a mission to showcase the history of Catawba Valley alkaline glazed stoneware and the potters who continually produce this traditional utilitarian ware. Development and growth have allowed the festival to include potters from across the state and the South, as well as dealers offering historical pottery and antiques, providing a context for understanding the history and use of pottery in the South. The Festival is a non-profit event benefiting the Historical Association of Catawba County in Newton, and the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove. More than $500,000 has been donated to the institutions over the past 18 years.
