Gallery Discussion: “The Meaders Family: North Georgia Potters”

7 – 8 pm
Lectures and Gallery Talks

This event is preceded by a screening of “The Meaders Family: North Georgia Potters." The 30-minute Smithsonian documentary from 1978 profiles Cheever and Lanier Meaders of Mossy Creek, Georgia, and captures the techniques of pottery making, an art tradition embedded in the natural resources and craft practices of the South. Following the film, join Georgia potter Clint Alderman and Dale Couch, curator of decorative arts, for a folk pottery discussion with visitors alongside the Meaders face jugs display on view in the permanent collection wing.
