Daniel Johnston is the leading exponent of North Carolina’s pottery tradition and simultaneously one of that state’s most contemporary and cerebral artists. His debut on the national art scene in 2014 with the intention that he could “make pots that reflect the culture and times in which I live,” was swiftly followed with three critically-acclaimed installations, sold out exhibitions and accessions by museums.

The current exhibition brings together ten of the artist’s most recent vessels. His signature voluminous, round jars stand with authority, highlighting Johnston’s mastery of technique and “the expressive qualities of repetition, steadiness, and longevity.”

Concurrently, the Gregg Art Museum’s presentation “Daniel Johnston: A Thousand Throws” is on view through July 18.
