The Men Won't Tell Us Anything
Jan 22 - Sept 5, 2021
The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia is proud to present a new temporary exhibit featuring
women folk potters of Northeast Georgia. The exhibit is entitled
"The Men Won't Tell Us Anything": Women of Georgia Folk Pottery (Born 1890 - 1940s).
The exhibit highlights the work of Arie Meaders, Grace Nell Hewell,
Lin Craven and Marie Rogers. Find out how women in Folk Pottery
moved from decorating pieces of pottery to throwing their own jugs, chickens and churns.
This installation is part of a series that will focus on the evolution of women in folk
pottery and tell their stories about family, life and folk pottery.
Jeanie Daves of Clarkesville, pottery advocate, shares her experiences of
Folk Potters and pottery with former museum director, Anna Calliham.
