East Carolina University School of Art and Design Alumni Exhibition

It is a pleasure to have one of my wood fired vessels exhibited in "East Carolina University School of Art and Design Alumni Exhibition". I grew up in Greenville, NC, where ECU is located, and it is where I attended undergraduate school to study Art. Of the four venues exhibiting this alumni show, it is personally gratifying that my piece will be on exhibit in the Greenville Museum of Art. This is a building I passed by, and visited, many, many times during my childhood. An honor, indeed!
This is the tokkuri (sake flask) that will be on exhibit, along with its tomobako (wooden storage box)...

The East Carolina University SOAD Alumni Exhibition will be held in Greenville, NC,  September 4 - 26, 2015.

The opening reception will be held at four venues:
Wellington B. Gray Gallery,
Greenville Museum of Art,
Emerge Gallery at the Pitt County Arts Council,
and the Faulkner Gallery at Joyner Library on Friday, September 4th from 5:00-8:00pm as part of Uptown Greenville’s ArtWalk.
