Pottery Northwest brings to Seattle Five Nationally Renowned Clay Artists

Exhibition Runs October 8-28, 2011
OPENING RECEPTION:  Friday, October 8, 6 pm

Pottery Northwest, the region's premiere ceramic facility, will host the Jean Griffith Fellowship Fifth Anniversary Exhibition this October.  This show of ceramic artists will bring together the work of the visiting artists that have been recipients of the Jean Griffith Fellowship award. The prominent list includes Beth Cavener Stichter, Josh DeWeese, Richard Notkin, Tip Toland and Andy Nasisse.  The show will run from October 8 through October 28, 2011 in the Gallery of Pottery Northwest's historic home at 226 First Avenue North (between Thomas and John), just one block south of the Key Arena at the Seattle Center.  An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, October 8, at 6 pm.  The public is cordially invited to attend.

The Jean Griffith Fellowship was created to honor the long-time director of Pottery Northwest for much of its first forty years. The fellowship brings artists of national stature to Pottery Northwest to pursue their art work.  Fellowship artists are provided with a stipend in addition to having their materials and firing costs supported while working at Pottery Northwest.  In addition to serving the field of ceramics, the program enriches the studio environment at Pottery Northwest with interaction between the fellowship artists and the artists-in-residence and students.

All five fellowship recipients are practicing studio artists whose work and time are in high demand. The group includes the former director of the Archie Bray Foundation, Josh DeWeese, and former Professor of Ceramics at the University of Georgia, Andy Nasisse. Beth Cavener Stichter and Tip Toland have both been honored with the Virginia A. Groot Foundation Award in sculpture and Richard Notkin is a United States Artist Fellow. Collectively the Jean Griffith Fellowship artists are representative of the diversity and quality of in the field of contemporary ceramics.
