Calendar Pick: ‘Perspectives’ Sale and Show


The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation will host its 20th annual “Perspectives: Georgia Pottery Invitational,” an exhibition and sale spotlighting 50 potters, all with unique works to share, making it one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast. Keep an eye out for booths by Sandy Culp, Jerry and Kathy Chappelle, Barry Gregg, Michael Klapthor, Adrina Richard, Zuzka Vaclavik and Minsoo Yuh. Additionally, a special collection of figurative porcelain sculptures by Krista Grecco will be on view in the Hall Gallery. On Aug. 26–27, potter Lora Rust will be heading a workshop entitled “Pushing the Surface of Clay,” which will introduce potters to handmade tools and techniques Rust has developed. The workshop runs 10 a.m.–5 p.m. both days, and is $175 for OCAF members or $225 for non-members. Over 4,000 pieces of pottery will be available for sale from Georgia artists, and if you have your eye set on a particular piece or artist, you may find the Preview Night useful. For $20 at the door on Aug. 26 from 5–8 p.m., shoppers will get an opportunity to grab their favorite piece before the sale officially opens to the public the next morning. Once that happens, however, admission is free. The sale is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily until Sept. 11.
