Event Description:
The Johnson City Area Arts Council welcomes all to the art opening and reception of "Bowls," an exhibition of ceramic vessels by Don Davis on First Friday, April 4 from 6-8 p.m. The artist says, "My ongoing dedication to clay work is due to an enduring love for the material and the processes of forming and firing it. I cannot think of anything better to do."

Davis' love of clay and the expertise he has cultivated is appreciated around the globe. His work is included in collections at The Mint Museum, Charlotte, N.C., The International Museum of Ceramics in Alfred, N.Y., and Shirikawa Public Hall, Japan. Teaching workshops conducted include La Meridiana, Tuscany, Italy, Atelier Cirkel, Brasschaat, Belgium, University of South Carolina, The Virginia Museum School, and others. He was awarded an invitational artist's residency for the month of July 2005 at Studio Art Centers International, Florence Italy and another at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in 2007.

As the son of a naval officer, his childhood was spent in various locations including Florida, Italy, California, and Hawaii. Graduate Studies in Ceramics were accomplished at Rhode Island School of Design where he received his MFA in 1974. Most of his career has been as a full time studio potter working in Asheville, N.C. In 1994, he was hired as the initial director of Odyssey Center for the Ceramic Arts in Asheville, N.C. He authored Wheel Thrown Ceramics that was published in 1998. Currently, Davis is a professor in the ETSU Department of Art & Design and lives in Johnson City, Tenn., with his family.

Davis' work is on exhibit at the opening reception April 4 or during open gallery hours through April 28. The Johnson City Area Arts Council gallery is located at 300 East Main Street in downtown Johnson City is also regularly open from 10 a.m.– 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
