Hey you!

Jug Head, here.

We got clay art and quilts in the gallery this month.

What? Not been yet? Well...

Get your face down to the "Face Jugs/Mugs and Quilts of Modern Day Appalachia" exhibit at the Scenic City Clay Arts, pronto!

As the jug mentioned, several members of the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild and I have our quilts on display along with clay pieces by Mark Issenberg and Shelby West Pottery at the Scenic City Clay Arts gallery. It's a delightful exhibit.

Larry and I went to see the exhibit last week and it has a great juxtaposition of soft and hard mediums—the quilts with the clay pieces. All the pieces are very thoughtfully arranged and the exposed brick walls provide a nice backdrop for the quilts.

There are 9 quilts on display, including the CMQG banner quilt. Here are a few pictures we took at the exhibit, but it's always better to see the work in person. This is Camille's quilt, "The Illusionist" beside an earth tone ceramic pitcher.

My face quilt, "Listen," is flanked by two face jugs. There seems to be a conversation going on between the three of them. Who's listening and who's speaking??? I wonder.

Two beautiful ceramic serving platters complement the circles and curves in Kelly's "Crop Signs" quilt.

There are functional pots as well as ceramic wall art for sale (at very reasonable prices). A few of the quilts are also for sale.

If you work downtown in Chattanooga, are on a shopping jaunt at Warehouse Row, or having lunch or dinner downtown, stop in for a few minutes to see the exhibit, now through January 25, 2018. The clay studio and gallery are open late (to 8:30 pm) a few days during the week, so a visit after work is absolutely doable.

Why not wait for the rush hour traffic to disperse and spend a little time with the pots and the quilts?
