TRAC Gallery in Burnsville, NC, Offers Works by Yancey County Potters

The Toe River Arts Council in Burnsville, NC, is presenting works by members of the Yancey County Potters, on view in the TRAC Gallery, through Dec. 29, 2013.

Yancey County Potters with works in the show include: Garold Amsberry, Lynda Gayle Banner, Claudia Dunaway, Becky Gray, Kathryn House, Sarah House, Pete and Kim McWhirter, Jackie Murray, Michael Rutkowsky, Ruth Rutkowsky, Estela Shackelford, Tria Turrou, Tzadi Turrou, and Kari Weaver.

From Celo to Burnsville, some of these clay artists have been in Yancey County for decades; others arrived just a few years ago, but being potters wasn’t the only common thread. All wanted to encourage new artists and to raise public awareness of Yancey County as a destination for truly great clay art. They discovered the way to do this was to come together as one entity and to share resources in marketing and expertise in order to promote the professional clay artists of Yancey County. That became the basis for their mission statement.
