The program aimed to provide opportunity to the local potters to showcase their new body of work, present various creative and educational workshops to local community and wider audience.
Since 1976, The Nepean Potters Society has and still provides a significant support network for local and regional Potters. This highly skilled and engaging group investigates their unique creativity through the use of clay, using both specialised traditional methods and the exploration of new techniques.
Clay at the Corner is an exciting exhibition by the Nepean Potters Society, a public display of hand crafted pottery from thirteen artisans that share their passion for clay. The exhibition features fantastic pieces that are the result of the potters’ craftsmanship. All of the artworks have been produced and fired here at the St Marys Corner Arts and Craft Studio. This studio is an important hub at the precinct as it provides the community an avenue for social and artistic expression and the way of sharing creative skills and knowledge.
These artworks together with a digital screen presentation have been be exhibited at three council’s facilities throughout April 2011, at the Arts and Craft Studios and Memorial Hall at St Marys Corner and later in the month in Penrith Council Civic Centre’s foyer.
We congratulate all the potters participating in Clay at the Corner 2011 exhibition on the high quality of their artworks and their contribution to creating a vibrant City.
