The 10th annual fall show of Terra Madre: Women in Clay begins on Friday with an opening reception from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The full sale will be on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Parking is plentiful at the church, but carpooling with a fellow ceramic art enthusiast is always a good idea.

This is Terra Madre’s most popular show, growing each year, with many shopping for the upcoming holiday season. With over 30 different clay artists, this show will feature functional as well as art pieces, at a wide variety of price points.
“We are very excited about this year’s show at St. George’s,” says Terra Madre President Elaine Barnes. “We are so pleased to have several new members showing their unique styles of ceramic art, alongside the ever-evolving artwork of many of our founding members, from Judy Brater’s animal-inspired and colorful sculptural works, to Jackie Mirzadeh’s modern, pattern-based texture work. The diversity of the creativity among this group is truly astounding, and it inspires me every day.”

Terra Madre: Women in Clay is a juried group of women clay artists that was founded in 2000 by female ceramic artists from East Tennessee. Their primary mission is to support each other in their clay work, to advance the appreciation of ceramics in East Tennessee, and to encourage excellence in clay artistry and craftsmanship through mentoring and educational activities. Terra Madre members are affiliated with many juried and professional arts organizations, including the Foothills Craft Guild, the Southern Highland Craft Guild and the Arts & Culture Alliance. Collectively, the group exhibits in 2-3 shows annually and individually their work has been exhibited all over the country and can be found in galleries, shops, juried fine craft shows, as well as in many private art collections.

Located at St. George Greek Orthodox Church
