NCCCA Arts Center Announces Exhibition by Pat Duniho and Potter’s Guild
Photography and Pottery to be featured in upcoming exhibition
Plattsburgh, NY (October 15th, 2012) – The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts (NCCCA Arts Center) is pleased to present photographer, Pat Duniho and The North Country Potter’s Guild in its Main Gallery through November 2012. This exhibition combines local photography and ceramics for a diverse show that explores nature, shape, form and color. The opening reception will be held November 2, 5:30-7:30pm and the exhibition runs until December 1.
Pat Duniho is an Art Teacher at Plattsburgh High School teaching photography, ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting and sculpture. The bulk of his own creative expression has been devoted to the medium of photography, which is influenced by his early career as a graphic designer and his desire to communicate a clear message to the viewer.
Duniho explains, “It’s as though nature has already composed the photographs I seek to make, but has left it up to me to find the endless possible compositions hidden in the natural world.”
“We’re excited to be working with both Pat Duniho and the Potter’s Guild,” says Shawna Armstrong, NCCCA Gallery and Graphics Coordinator. “The combination of Pat’s stunning photographs and the variety of Guild members’ pottery will be an unusual and welcomed experience in our Main Gallery.”
The North Country Potter’s Guild is a group of potters working together for over a decade, who take part and host a variety of events throughout the year. Brought together by core values, their mission involves educating the community, “in all matters of clay.”
Because many of the Guild’s ceramic artists do not have personal studios, artists often share studio space. The Jackie Sabourin Clay Studio located in the lower level of the Arts Center is also giving artists an additional space to create. Many members of the Guild are teaching artists and volunteer ceramic artists as well. For more information about the Guild, please visit their website at: www.northcountrypottersguild. org.
The Arts Center is open to visitors Tuesday through Friday, 10am - 5pm and Saturdays, 10am - 4pm. For a complete listing of all classes and workshops, please visit the NCCCA Arts Center’s website at: www.plattsburgharts.org
