As the largest exhibition of its kind in the South, the 14th annual “Perspectives: Georgia Pottery Invitational” features over 7,500 pieces created by 50 of the best ceramicists in the state. In addition to the main display, the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation presents three smaller shows: “Participating Potters: 2016,” displaying two works by each artist; “American Ceramic Masters,” with selections curated by Rick Berman; and “Atomic Clay,” featuring clay robots by Michael Klapthor. Friday’s opening gala and preview sale includes a “meet and mingle” with the artists, food and live music by Period Six. The exhibition continues daily through Sept. 14, with pottery demonstrations held on Saturdays from 1–4 p.m.
