Chowan University’s Department of Communication Arts host A Glimpse of a Maker’s Gallery Exhibition
To kick off the Fall semester, the Department of Communication Arts hosted the opening of A Glimpse of a Maker’s Gallery: Shockoe Bottom Clay Exhibition in the Juanita Kelly Pond and Charles & Frances Hinnant Galleries in Green Hall on Friday, September 9, 2022. The exhibit features clay artwork by Victoria White Berry, Daniel Christie, Lesa Fleet, Susan Gaible, Mark Koslow, Jane Martin, Annegret Massey, Tracy Shell, and Buddy Terrell.
On display is a well-curated selection of utilitarian to decorative pieces from the Shockoe Bottom artists. The intent of the exhibit is to “show art students that when they graduate, this is a way for them to create, show and sell their ‘art habit’ by renting studio spaces like Shockoe Bottom Clay,” shared Associate Professor of Art and Green Hall Galleries Director, Rob Buller. Shockoe Bottom Clay is a unique place in Richmond, VA, that offers studio and gallery space, providing local artists with a place to make, show, and sell their artwork.
Visitors to the exhibit are encouraged to use the QR codes to learn more about Shockoe Bottom Clay. All artwork is for sale, and the artists and owners of Shockoe Bottom Clay will donate 20% of all sales to the Chowan University Clay Club.
The public is invited to view A Glimpse of a Maker’s Gallery: Shockoe Bottom Clay in Green Hall now until September 30, 2022. Green Hall is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. For more information on the exhibit, you may contact Associate Professor of Art and Green Hall Galleries Director Rob Buller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
