Monica Hewryk, Resident Potter

August 16 - September 3, 2017

Guilford Art Center is pleased to present an exhibition of the ceramic work of Monica Hewryk, the Center’s Resident Potter beginning September 2016. The exhibition is on view in the gallery August 16 – September 3, with an opening reception on Friday, August 18 from 5-7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.

“My inspiration comes from exploring the irony of pottery and playing with ideas potters would normally avoid,” says Hewryk. “Purposely illustrating imperfections and enhancing these features to design a new look, I try to accentuate these ironies in different recognizable forms, using a lot of color and movement. Creating mainly sculptural work, my style is a combination of pushing boundaries of construction and adding a bit of whimsy. ”
