Cub Creek: Tenth Year Anniversary Exhibition
November 15th, 2012 - February 16th, 2013
Located on 100 acres in the beautiful Virginia Piedmont, the Cub Creek Foundation brings a "rich and diverse ceramic experience to the central Atlantic region." The most important activity of the foundation, according to director and long-time ceramicist and teacher John Jessiman, is "the creation of a supportive residency for emerging ceramic artists." Each resident artist has his/her own studio space and access to a variety of kilns from the Asian anagama to the modern electric kiln. The rolling fields and wide vistas of the Piedmont provide a beautiful and inspiring natural setting; Cub Creek itself, in the words of one former resident artist, "provides abundant space and time to learn, run, explore and grow in."
The Juniata College Museum of Art is pleased to host the final stop of Cub Creek's 10th anniversary traveling exhibition, which demonstrates the rich diversity of forms, technique and expression inspired by Cub Creek. Work exhibited is by Jessiman, other Cub Creek Founders and Board Members including Randy Edmonson, and resident and visiting artists among them Juniata Emeritus Professor of Art Jack Troy.
