Arts of the Earth: Wood and Clay

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
$85 Members, $95 non-members (includes transportation and lunch)

Join us for this special half-day, small-group tour to visit the WNC studios of two master artists working in natural media, plus a delicious locally sourced lunch! Our first stop is to the Bat Cave studio of Michael Sherrill, a materials-based artist experimenting primarily in clay, metal, and glass whose handmade objects explore the intersection of humans and materials in the natural world. Then, we head over to Saluda for a tasty lunch at The Purple Onion, known for its organic ingredients and simple, healthful Mediterranean-inspired menu. We end in Saluda with a visit to the studio of Stoney Lamar, whose unique multi-axial lathe work gives his wood sculptures a distinct sense of movement. Works by both Sherrill and Lamar are featured in the Museum’s and other public and private collections around the country.

Space is limited; register by October 13. For more information or to register by phone, call 828.253.3227 x122.
