Pottery by Eugene

Since 1986 ceramic artists Rosa and Winton Eugene have created fine and functional pottery that often addresses important topics such as race and climate change. They are still working in Cowpens, South Carolina today. In 2022, the couple warmly welcomed our Curatorial staff to visit their studio and gallery to conduct an interview. The Eugene’s grandson, Zajwain Eugene, directed, filmed, and edited this video interview.

Major funding for the Asheville Art Museum’s Object Collections Access Project was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities American Rescue Plan.
