Studio Centric offers diverse selection of original art at Kil'n TimeOctober 07, 2012
Original works from a dozen artists will be on display during Studio Centric, a one-day show and sale to be held at Kil’n Time Contemporary Ceramics Studio in downtown Bristol. The event is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 7 from 1-5 p.m. and will feature paintings, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, prints and more.
According to Sylvia Musgrove, director, the show originated in a discussion between studio staff and affiliated artists. “Bristol is lucky to host a large and growing arts community,” she said. “We realized that among our staff and friends there are potters, painters, sculptors, photographers—tons of talent close at hand. This show gives everyone a chance to see that creativity together in one spot.”
Part of the show’s appeal, noted Musgrove, is that it offers patrons the chance to see works from well-known, prolific artists, as well as others who produce lovingly crafted pieces in smaller numbers. “There’s a dynamic mix of styles and disciplines,” Musgrove said. “Some, like Val Lyle, Aleta Chandler and Nadya Warthen-Gibson pursue their arts full time and have broad portfolios. Others are teachers, curators, office workers, businesspeople—people who also love to create, but focus their time on a few special pieces each year.”
Selections will include: paintings by Christine Berg; ceramics and jewelry from Aleta Chandler; hand-painted ceramics by Howard Dale; hand-painted ceramics from Amy Davis; prints by Greg Howser; photography by Herbert Lee Jones; hand-built ceramics and jewelry by L.E. Kincaid; paintings, prints and sculpture by Val Lyle; hand-painted ceramics by Bethany Neese; hand-thrown pottery from David vanWyhe and Walking Tree Pottery; sculpture and paintings from Nadya Warthen-Gibson; and pottery by Kathy Winters.
There is no charge for admission. Additional information is available by calling the studio at 423.573.9950.
