Kicking off August is the 4th Annual SCAC Pottery Collective Art Exhibit.

This much-anticipated exhibit features work created by a group of ceramic artists in Shelby County.

These artists have formed a sort of artist community in the SCAC pottery studio helping and supporting each other to prefect their craft.

Work can vary from pieces thrown on a pottery wheel to hand build sculptures.

Each artist has their own unique style to bring to the table.

Pottery Collective member Candye Lundy expresses her love for birds and hearts in her pieces.

“I love the energy of creating with other artists,” says Lundy. “It pushes you outside the box to help you discover your own creative passions.”

This show will feature the work of longtime members Sandra Annonio, Peggy Wood, Amy Pickens, Aprille Hayes, as well as several others.

Join us at the Shelby County Arts Council on Sunday, Aug. 6 from 1-3:30 p.m. for the Pottery Collective Art Exhibit opening reception.

See work from some of the most talented artists in the county and meet these incredible artists. This reception is free and open to the public.
