Sculpture show in Saluda Nov. 18

Published 6:31 pm Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Jeanette Comer and Claire Carey, clay sculptors, are presenting some of their work at the Wine Cellar of the Saluda Inn on Thursday, November 18 beginning at 7 p.m.

Carey has been sculpting since 2006. After moving to Tryon in the fall of 1999, she took up pottery at Tryon Arts and Crafts, an affiliate of the Tryon Fine Arts Center. Pottery seemed like a natural medium for someone who had been gardening for much of her life. It was working with dirt while at the same time providing an outlet for her creativity, Carey says. Now Carey has left potting behind and is a member of Tryon Painters and Sculptors.

Comer moved to Tryon in the fall of 2008. Prior to that, most of her spare time was spent in&bsp; the performing arts, performing vocally and on various instruments, including lute, classical guitar, harpsichord, and Renaissance recorder. Wanting to try her hand at the visual arts, she took up sculpting in January of 2009 and became a member of Tryon Painters and Sculptors.

Both Carey and Comer are a part of the Claydies, a group of women who meet once a week in the sculpture studio to have fun with clay and enjoy each others company.

Copies of Comers book, Poems by Bonnie Pques, the Poet Pooch, an illustrated collection of poems told from a dogs point of view, will also be available.

Join these two ladies Thursday night, November 18, in Saluda at the Wine Cellar.
