The Holiday Sale is a great time to re-connect with artists who have previously sold pottery at NCC. It is also an exciting opportunity to introduce new artists to the gallery—keeping the cupboard full of fresh ideas and pots for our shoppers. NCC’s Gallery Manager, Karen McPherson (KM), interviewed a few of this year’s featured holiday artists.
This January, new artists will join the year-round gallery roster. These artists were juried into the gallery last summer, selected out of a pool of over 50 applicants. Some of these artists have been making pots for years, some are very young, some we have invited to be past Featured Artists, and some have been with us at a past holiday show or American Pottery Festival. All of these artists will send a new group of pots to the gallery in January of 2014.
