Tarheel Wandering: a Journey in Black & White
Sgraffito by Raine Middleton
June 7 – July 29, 2017
Lincoln County , NC artist Raine Middleton follows a path of creativity originally taken by her ancestors. She refers to herself as a “master doodler.” She throws porcelain on the pottery wheel, painting the piece in black slip. She paints her designs freehand on each piece and then carves out the background. The ancient pottery decorating technique is known as Sgraffito and Middleton is indeed a master. Please drop by to meet her during the exhibit’s opening reception on Wednesday evening, June 7 from 5 to 7 p.m.
