By Example presents the work of twenty younger NC ceramic artists who use color, texture and imagery in their work  and examines the sources of the newer guard of NC clay makers. Guest curator Ronan Kyle Peterson has selected 20 artists who in turn have invited 20 mentors who have impacted their work and careers in a significant way.  By Example runs through August 26.These are some shots from the opening reception.

While we were in the area, we visited Seagrove, NC.  Here's some pics from Jugtown
