05-26-2016-gallery-discussion-250x250.jpgThis event is preceded by a screening of “The Meaders Family: North Georgia Potters,” the 1978 Smithsonian documentary profiles Cheever and Lanier Meaders of Mossy Creek and captures the techniques of pottery making, an art tradition embedded in the natural resources and craft practices of the South. Following the film, attendees will join local potters and Brittany Ranew, education program specialist, for a folk pottery discussion with visitors alongside the Meaders face jugs display on view in the permanent collection wing.
