June at ARTworks: Jada, Hank, Trevor and Picasso

From the inferno of life and kilns comes art, in the form of useful pottery, hilarious plays, and astounding careers. On Friday, June 8, a new gallery show opens at ARTworks, “The Art of Clay” showcasing the works of Jada Gray, Hank D. Herring and Trevor Foster. Meet these talented artists from 5-7 p.m. — they’ve even made new clay dishes for the refreshments. At 7:30 p.m., the play “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” begins. Not only is this production about art, Einstein, love and special visitors from the future, but it’s written by Steve Martin, that admirably wild and crazy guy.
Even displayed in a clean, well-lit gallery, clay is a primitive material — and in the hands of Gray, Foster, and Herring, it is a beautiful and functional material. For this show and sale in the gallery at ARTworks throughout June, these three artists, as well as their specially invited friends, present collectible objects that have been hand built, thrown on the wheel, intertwined with handwoven baskets, glazed, and set into the inferno of the raku process. They’ve created vessels and vases and drums and urns and many more delightful forms that give beauty to the home and garden. Peruse the gallery anytime Tuesdays through Saturdays.
The Art of Clay will remain up through June. “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” however, ends Sunday, June 10. Get information and tickets at www.artworksinbeaufort.org or by calling 379-2787.
