Patricia Herzog: Clay
Artist Statement: Patricia Herzog has been working as a professional clay artist since 1978 after graduating from the Uni-versity of Tennessee with a Master of Science Degree in Ceramics. Her recent work reflects her contin-ued interest in color, decoration, texture and function. Her ceramic forms are inspired by her travels and Tennessee surroundings with an emphasis on animal imagery, universal patterns in nature, and the art of ancient cultures. She hopes her work portrays a sense of humaneness in this

Carol Quin: Painting
I have been painting and exhibiting since the early 1990’s, mostly in the Southeast although I have been in exhibition in NYC through World Fine Art Gallery, Ariel Gallery, and Abney gallery. I am inspired by nature and the local beauty of this area, as well as the psychologi-cal processes that create this inspiration. I was educated at the University of Tennessee (BS, MS, and PhD) in Human Ecology. I began painting in the early 80’s as a watercolorist painting mostly nature, and rapidly moved into various mixed media, larger cre-ations, and more abstraction in design. My work is mainly from self-exploration and experimentation with the mediums and from the passion of exploring color and textures.
