PAST EXHIBIT

The Men Won't Tell Us Anything
April 4 - Oct 3, 2022

The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia is proud to present "The Men Won't Tell Us Anything": Women of Georgia Folk Pottery (Born 1950s – Today). This exhibit is the second and final installment of the series highlighting women in folk pottery.

The show features a range of wares from churns and jars to bunnies and face jugs. In total, the exhibit highlights ten women, all located in Northeast Georgia. Many of the women featured came to pottery through their fathers or husbands. Although their male counterparts may experience more canonical success, these women are undoubtedly important to Georgia folk pottery.

Potters included in the exhibit include Kathy Meaders, Treva Meaders Patterson, Anita Meaders, Annette Meaders Boswell, Mary Meaders Adams, Abby Turpin Ramsey, Lucille Winkler, Dolly Hogan, and Jamie Ferguson. Additionally, Suzanne Reese Johnston serves as a pottery advocate for this exhibit.
