MYCO Features Exhibits on SC Pottery and Ceramics in Rock Hill, SC
The York County Culture
and Heritage Commission will host an exhibit at the Museum of
York County in Rock Hill, SC, entitled, The Difference in Dirt:
South Carolina Pottery and Ceramic Arts, which will feature
five exhibitions from Nov. 11, 2000 through Aug. 19, 2001.
The Difference in Dirt: Traditional Pottery from South Carolina, which runs from Nov. 11, 2000 - Aug. 19, 2001, will explore the differences of prehistoric, historic, and traditional pottery made through the present time. This exhibition will include Native American pottery, utilitarian vessels made throughout the state from York and other upstate counties, the Old Edgefield District, Union District, the South Carolina Jug Factory area, and contemporary folk potters continuing this tradition within the state.
The Difference in Dirt: Contemporary Ceramic Arts of South Carolina, on view from Nov. 11, 2000 through Aug. 5, 2001, will focus on pottery and ceramic arts made in South Carolina in the last three quarters of the 20th century.
The Difference in Families, which consist of three separate exhibitions, will focus on the contemporary pottery and ceramic arts created by three families in South Carolina representing three different cultural traditions. These include Earl, Viola and Margaret Robbins, Catawba Indian potters from York County, SC (Nov. 18, 2000 - Jan. 21, 2001); Winton and Rosa Eugene, self-taught African American potters from Cowpens, SC (Feb. 10 - May 14, 2001); and the Meaders family from Six-Mile, SC, and White County, GA, (Jun. 3 - Aug. 19, 2001) featuring traditional folk potters of European American descent.
The entire Difference in Dirt project is the Culture and Heritage Commission's contribution being developed to tie in with the SC Arts Commission's Views from the Edge of the Century project to support exhibitions that give South Carolinians a cultural perspective on the cusp of the new millennium. These exhibitions will also be open during the National Conference on the Education of Ceramic Arts (NCECA) when they are meeting in Charlotte, NC, in Mar. 2001.
