Old School Farm Pottery Studio
Old School Farm Pottery Studio is a new member of the local nonprofit, Old School Farm. The Studio’s mission is to create meaningful employment for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities by crafting high-quality dinnerware, and to offer related educational programs and community outreach.
CONVERGE is spotlighting the clay work of Old School Farm Pottery, as well as personal work from those involved in the organization. Founder, Julia Whitney Brown, practices the centuries old technique of China painting; Pottery Teacher and Coordinator, Rebecca Blevins, creates clean, elegant forms with a focus on design; and via OSFP’s Artist Incubator Program, Studio Assistant, Jo Mechan, hand builds sculptures full of character and whimsy. In addition to the three-dimensional work, photographs of the organization in action will be on display. Moreover, Julia Whitney Brown will be performing live demonstrations of wheel throwing pottery at the reception.
This show will lead into a collaborative project featuring Old School Farm Pottery in August.
