In addition in the area on Thursday, August 18 between 5:00-9:00 pm, the West Main Artists Co-Op will host a closing reception for its current exhibit on totems.

Totem 2     There are 17 totems in the exhibit, made by local experienced potters: Heike Tonhaeuser, Athena Darby, Jill Dutton, Ellen Lassiter, Nancy Wall, and Nancy Williamson. Seven of the totems were created by workshop leader Gary Huntoon, a studio artist and teacher.

Totem     Traditionally, totems were three dimensional images of animals that were given symbolic and spiritual meaning to people in various cultures around the world. In North America, native Americans created totem poles that were tree trunks with symbolic carvings. In more recent years, totems have become popular art, especially for outdoor gardens, and the symbolic association with animals has often been replaced with purely aesthetic presentation. The totems at West Main Artists Co-Op are mostly made of clay and represent a wide range of artistic expression, including whimsical, religious, and naturalistic themes.

MORE DETAILS:  Call Williamson 864.621.2768.
