Center for Craft, Creativity & Design in Hendersonville, NC, Offers Group Exhibit Covering the Creative Process

The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design in Hendersonville, NC, will present the exhibit, Soul's Journey: Inside the Creative Process, featuring works by contemporary object makers, on view from Jan. 23 through Apr. 25, 2009.

This exhibition features 22 accomplished contemporary object makers living in the Southeast ­ from Virginia to Florida ­ and working in ceramic, fiber, glass, metal, and wood. The exhibit developed from a six-part documentary series (of the same name),
illuminating the creative process through an intimate view of these working artists told largely through their own words. Visitors will be able to search and select segments of the film to view as part of the exhibit.

The exhibition complements the documentary, showcasing significant works by established and emerging artists, representative as much of the ethnic, gender and geographic diversity as the area's creative tradition and cultural heritage.

Participating artists include: Elizabeth Brim, Penland, NC; Curtis Buchanan, Jonesborough, TN; Hunt Clark, Sparta, TN; Cristina Cordova, Penland, NC; Sam Corso, Baton Rouge, LA; Susie Ganch, Richmond, VA; Hoss Haley, Asheville, NC; Mark Hewitt, Pittsboro, NC; Richard Jolley, Knoxville, TN; Janice Kluge, Birmingham, AL; Ellen Kochansky, Pickens, SC; Stoney Lamar, Saluda, NC; Dale Lewis, Oneonta, AL; Mark Lindquist, Quincy, FL; Gwendolyn Magee, Jackson, MS; Patricia Mink, Johnson City, TN; Gary Noffke, Farmington, GA; Richard Prisco, Savannah, GA; Joel Queen, Cherokee, NC; Ché Rhodes, Louisville, KY; Michael Sherrill, Bat Cave, NC; and Jerydine Taylor, Walterboro, SC.

The Center for Craft, Creativity and Design is an inter-institutional center of the University of North Carolina, located 5 miles west of Hendersonville, adjacent to the UNC Asheville Kellogg Center. Visitors are invited to walk the Perry N. Rudnick one-mile nature and public art trail following a visit to the exhibition in the Craft Center galleries.
