New Gallery Exhibition Opens Thursday, Aug 12
View ceramic work by Megan Mayall, GAC’s resident potter, in the art gallery from
August 12 – September 4.
Mayall started her residency at Guilford Art Center during the summer of 2019. When the pandemic put everything on hold, “art took center stage” says Mayall. She explored other ways to continue making, including playing with primitive firing pits, crochet and painting. These endeavors, plus additional time in the studio since then, have resulted in new works that focus on new shapes and form. Mayall prefers using porcelain, focusing on functional pieces such as bowls, mugs, and platters.
“I find its smooth texture and classic white color provides a perfect backdrop for adding floral designs along side simple lines.” Mayall loves creating teapots, focusing on the minute details that lead to classic, timeless creations.
Gallery hours are Wednesday-Friday, 12-4pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. Admission is free and open to the community.
