Local Fund Raiser

Hope all you North Carolinians, or at least the mountain and piedmont folk, are enjoying all this snow. Studio time has been limited of late, due to sicknesses and the plain fact of having a 3 year old and almost 3 month old in the household.

Just wanted to send out a quick link to a fundraiser at the Chapel Hill Museum: http://www.chapelhillmuseum.org/Events/2009_ArtfromtheHeart/gallery_all/peterson_r.jpg_gallery_page/
The event date is coming up soon, if you are interested check out the link, which goes directly to my donated piece.

Also, trying really hard to get a momentum going for making work for my solo show in Raleigh at the Nature Art Museum. Getting pieces done in fits and starts at this point, but excited about what is coming out. The show title is "Stumps and Stones" and I will post more info soon.

Stay dry and warm!

Happy 2010!

Well, a lot of time has passed since my last post. Holidays have come and gone and my little boy Milo is 2 months old and getting nice and fat and starting to smile and engage those around him. I have been M.I.A. from the studio since my holiday sale, and I'm in dire need of getting back. I have a solo show come March at the Nature Art Gallery in Raleigh, NC at the Museum of Natural History, and lots of ideas for some new, larger work. So, like I said, dire need. More on this later.

Before then, however, I wanted to let y'all know about a show I helped put together for the Claymakers Invites series at Claymakers Gallery/Studio in Durham, NC. The show is called "Asheville in the Bull City" and includes Asheville, NC area potters William Baker, Patty Bilbro, Kyle Carpenter, Karen Newgard, and Lindsay Rogers. The show opens January 15, 6-9pm and runs through March 2010. This will be a great gathering of some of the best ceramic work western North Carolina has to offer. Come on by the opening if you have the chance, and meet the artists, or stop in Claymakers if you are in the Durham area during the show. You can go to www.claymakers.com for directions and more info on the show.
