As the new Resident Potter at Guilford Art Center (GAC), Monica Hewryk feels a bit like a kid in a toy shop. That suits her playful style with clay and her joyful approach to collaborating with others perfectly.
The New Britain resident and newly graduated Central Connecticut State University fine arts major was in the thick of the action this past Saturday in the well-equipped GAC ceramics studio. Monica enjoyed sharing the company of many members of the GAC pottery community while lending a helping hand for what she described as a “mini bowl-a-thon,” crafting a collection of one-of-a-kind soup bowls for GAC’s fourth annual “Soup for Good” fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 13.
