Artists In Residence Event for October.

Upcoming WUGA Events

Saturday, October 10 3-5pm at the home of Ron Meyers

October's Artists in Residence event to benefit local public radio station WUGA takes place Saturday, October 10th, from 3 to 5 at the home of famed potter Ron Meyers.
A professor emeritus at the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, Meyers has been called an "icon of the American ceramics community” and “one of the masters of contemporary pottery.” His ceramic pieces often feature fish, chickens, frogs, and other animals done in a loose style that shows an occasional fingerprint or smudge. His pieces are highly sought after; some sales events had all the pieces snapped up in a matter of minutes by jostling buyers stampeding to pick up something, anything he had created.
Ted Saupe, Professor of Art and Ceramics Area Chair at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, will speak about Meyers’ work briefly at 3:30 the afternoon of the event.
Attendees on October 10th will see Meyers’ ceramics-filled home and large studio and kilns out back.
Shiraz supplies fine wine, and Marti’s at Midday provides bountiful hors d’oeuvres.
The event is $10 for Friends of WUGA and $15 for others. (Friends memberships are $30 or more annually.)
