CERAMICS, FIBERS, & FOLK INVITATIONAL
MAY 31 – AUG 10, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: Thurs, MAY 31, 6-9pm
Visiting studios in Atlanta and Athens, GA, the curator selects artworks for sale which employ craft materials and/or aesthetics. Juxtaposing functional and non-functional work from over 40 artists, the gallery presents a wide spectrum of overlapping categories from Fine Art to ceramics for everyday use--all of which are highly valuable in a world gone virtual.
**This year we are thrilled to include a small selection of Folk/Outsider Art from North Georgia. Main Street Gallery in Clayton, GA--which houses an impressive collection--has generously agreed to let the Swan Coach Gallery exhibit and sell some work on consignment. Additionally, Tauches includes a few artists she found selling their work on the country highways.
Artworks include: cups, plates, planters, pots, bowls, boxes, tapestries/stitchery, hanging work, glass, watercolor & collage on paper, found objects, sculpture, wood, and more.
