Currents: Rappahannock Ceramic Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: September 4-27, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, September 4 (6-10pm)

PONSHOP owner Scarlett Pons will be exhibiting a series of custom ceramic plates inspired by “Rappahannock”, the 2014 film by Bayley Sillek.  The film inspired Pons to create artwork that raises awareness of our local river and the wildlife that depend upon it.  Scarlett designed a variety of fish-shaped plates glazed in bold speckled patterns that are both functional and decorative.

Throughout the month of September, and in conjunction with the Rappahannock RiverFest Fundraiser on September 19, the artist will be donating 20% of all ceramic fish plate sales to the Friends of the Rappahannock, a local non-profit dedicated to the health and vitality of the Rappahannock River.

From the Friends of the Rappahannock website:

Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) was formed in 1985 as a non-profit, grassroots conservation organization.  We are citizens from all walks of life, whose common goal is to maintain the water quality, living resources, and scenic beauty of the Rappahannock River and its tributaries.  We work with a wide variety of stakeholders, from local governments to elementary students, to educate about the river and to advocate for actions and policies that will protect and restore the values that make the Rappahannock River so special.  Learn more at www.riverfriends.org
