The Stokes County Arts Council welcomes Taylor Richardson and Stokes Opportunity Center Ceramics Students to the Apple Gallery for their exhibition “Helping Dreams Take Flight.” On display throughout the month of June, the exhibit features works in ceramics, mixed media, and acrylics.
The Stokes Opportunity Center is a day program that allows people to come together and receive long-term support and assistance in order for them to achieve productive, meaningful lives that reach their fullest potential. Day programs allow the people they serve to function with greater independence in the community.
Taylor Richardson has spent the past several months introducing those in the Stokes Opportunity Center day program to the world of pottery. Collectively, as a group, they embarked on new challenges and worked diligently to master working with clay on the pottery wheel and in the techniques of hand building.
Taylor Richardson is a graduate of UNC-Greensboro. She has a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in sculpture and ceramics. Since graduation she has been interning with the Stokes Opportunity Center to not only share her experience in pottery but also to introduce a new way of expressing art for those in her class.
An opening reception is being held at the Apple Gallery, 500 Main Street, Danbury, on Friday, June 7th from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. This reception is free and open to the public.
