Kathleen’s Gallery will host a reception for local potters, Lucinda and Gerry Pittman of Saluda on Friday, Nov. 25 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Well known for bright colors and whimsical designs, Lucinda and Gerry Pittman have delighted collectors and pottery lovers for more than 20 years. Their work is both fun and functional. Their wonky teapots are eagerly sought after, as well as painterly platters depicting colorful folk-art landscapes.
Lucinda was born and raised in Charlotte, N.C. She received her B.S. degree in art marketing and production from Appalachian State University. She moved to Asheville in 1983 where she met Gerry, who was a professional French Horn player.
Lucinda started her art pottery business in 1988 and Gerry soon partnered with her in 1991. Since then they have enjoyed making pottery together in the rural mountains of North Carolina. They moved to Saluda in 2003 where they built their studio and later their home surrounded by the natural beauty that inspires their work.
Come to meet the Pittman’s at Kathleen’s Gallery on Nov. 25 from 5 to 8 p.m. Kathleen’s is located in downtown Tryon at 98 N. Trade St.
