BPI Art Clips

A Focus on Pottery presented by BPI

For this edition of  Art in the Park, we shine a spotlight on pottery and works on clay by featuring two special exhibits,  Heart of the Fire from artist couple Jon and Tessy Pettyjohn and Intersection by Joey de Castro.

Over the years, ceramics have proven a popular and much-awaited section of Art in the Park.  Artists who work in the medium have gained a significant following from fair visitors, with pieces that range from purely functional tableware to compelling sculptural forms.

View BPI Art Clips and keep to Art in the Park’s spirit of discovery as we present  a set of specially-produced videos that will take us on studio visits for a closer look at the practices of our featured artists.
