Art Show Saturday features both Charlie Evergreen Ceramics and Encore for “Coastal Colors” Exhibit

Posted on Posted in Arts Council Exhibits, Real Estate

Saturday night’s ceramics exhibit will share the gallery space with our outgoing exhibit.  The beginning of the month brought local artists Janie Ball and Elizabeth Middour to the gallery in the Huyler House.  Both plein air painters, Janie and Elizabeth did some painting on the island, and took scores of photographs to provide us with a great exhibit, and there are some beautiful works left if you’re looking for a holiday gift or a piece of Dewees to bring to your home in another city.

For this weekend only, the paintings will frame the backdrop for a new exhibition of potter Charlie Evergreen.
Christie Drew, who has studied with Charlie, says this:
Its my great pleasure to guest post here on the Dewees Island Blog. I’m excited to introduce my friend Charlie Evergreen, a fellow ceramics artist working in Durham, NC. Charlie will be exhibiting in the Huyler House by invitation of the Dewees Island Arts Council starting November 4.
Charlie says “I’m happiest in life when I’m experimenting and learning, so I apply this to making art. To do so, I exercise control in my process, but intentionally leave part of the results to chance.”  The results are surprising and spectacular. Charlie makes both functional and sculptural art, all of which has an earthy, oceanic and sometimes otherworldly character.  You can preview the show from 4-6pm on Saturday November 4. And join us at  the opening reception to meet this vibrant ceramic artist starting at 6:30.
