Local Potter Displays Work at the Library

Art displays continue at the Anderson Public Library as part of a series with the Anderson County Arts Council with local pottery artist, Marianne Brown, displaying some of her amazing work.

Marianne started working with clay when she was only nine years old at a class at the Indianapolis Art League.  She continued working with clay through high school and started building her portfolio of work in her freshman year at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville.

After graduating, she continued experimenting with different techniques.  Eventually, she found that creating stoneware with a potter’s wheel was her true passion. “Throwing on the wheel was my true love,” Marianne said.

Through the years, her work has been showcased in many shows around the region.  She also teaches children on how to work with clay and make things using a potter’s wheel.

Marianne’s work will be on display at the library through July in the main display case near the parking lot entrance.  A special reception by the arts council will also be held at the library this Thursday, June 27th from 4:30pm to 6pm.
