PERSPECTIVES Lunchtime Conversations @ BMCM+AC
Explore our Materials, Sounds, and Black Mountain College exhibition along with an artist, historian, or scholar who will give perspective and context to the work from their particular point of view. Guest Speaker: Amanda Hollomon-Cook, Design Studio Manager at East Fork Pottery.
Amanda Hollomon-Cook is the Design Studio Manager at East Fork Pottery, the studio of Alex and Connie Matisse and John Vigeland based in Asheville, North Carolina. An apprentice of Matisse, Hollomon-Cook draws from a lineage of potters that can be traced back to Bernard Leach (BMC ceramics instructor, 1952.) Through a collaborative installation in this exhibition, Hollomon-Cook + East Fork bring local traditions and the Black Mountain College legacy into conversation with contemporary sound artist Jenn Grossman.
