My friend Paul Matheny had a great exhibition of new work during October at Hampton III Gallery in Greenville, SC. I was both honored and surprised when Paul and gallery owner extraordinaire Sandra Rupp asked me to write a piece about the show. (I don't get asked to write articles, much less show reviews, that often. So. much. fun.)
You can see the show online, read the article, and see a recorded artist talk on the galleries website here: .www.hamptoniiigallery.com/paul-matheny-2020
The good people at CIVA dedicated their latest journal to reflections on the craziness that has been 2020. I wrote an essay for the journal entitled "Making Pottery in a Time of Crisis," where I try to weave together some thoughts connecting CS Lewis with potter Malcom Davis. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, especially with the beautiful layout by their design team!
You can check out that article and many, many more reflections by getting a copy of the journal here. (it's free if you are a CIVA member).
