Mary Erickson: Making Art – Making a Difference
Elder Art Gallery
While spending most of this year traveling from Maine to Florida, Erickson created paintings that reflect the beauty of America’s east coast. The artist is working to preserve High Ridge, a natural habitat in Marshville, NC, where she lives and maintains a studio and retreat. A portion of all sales from our exhibition will go to a foundation to preserve High Ridge. The artist will be on hand during the opening reception to discuss her work.

Jennifer Allen, acclaimed porcelain sculptor, joins the Charlotte clay community from West Virginia for the weekend. In this demonstration workshop participants will learn how to create interesting forms using a technique of both single-pointed and double-pointed darting methods on both wheel-thrown and handbuilt forms.
