There is a great ceramics studio in Appomattox, VA whose name is Cub Creek Foundation for the Ceramics Arts. We were the first year residency artist at Cub Creek in Spring 2003, and it was one of the most wonderful time to us. The executive director and founder, John Jessiman was very experienced ceramics teacher at SUNY Cortland for years, then set up Cub Creek after his retirement.
Cub Creek has been creating great opportunity for young potters for several years, and they organized an exhibition of ceramics at Quirk Gallery, Richmond, VA in this spring. The show title is "Birth of a Notion".We joined the show as artists and tripped several times to up there in the beginning of January. It was good to see our folks and also great works in the gallery.
The show will be between Jan 9 and Feb 23, 2009. Please check it out if you have a chance.
