WCU alumnus, ceramicist to show at Green Energy Park

Written by 

art greenenergypotteryThe Jackson County Green Energy Park will host a reception at its art gallery from 5-7 p.m. Aug. 23 for Western Carolina University alumnus and ceramist Preston Tolbert.

The event is free and open to the public.

“When I work with wet clay, I like to explore the nature of movement. The clay resists and reacts to my hands, recording every touch, rip, and cut. I like to make a new clean form, then attack it to give it age and depth,” said Tolbert of his work.

Tolbert graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Fine Arts/Ceramics in 2007, apprenticed with Don Reitz in Arizona for two years and has created hundreds of ceramic works. He currently lives and has a pottery shop in downtown Old Fort.

The Jackson County Green Energy Park is an award-winning, community-scale landfill gas project located in Dillsboro.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
