It could be said that the essence of artistic process is a willingness and ability to deal with uncertainty. There is so much we cannot control, and so many wonderful results that come from risk-taking and experimentation. Working with materials, trying new techniques, seeking a way to express a thought, feeling or concept, we often have no idea what the end result will be, but we trust the process. Arrowmont is a work in process these days and we are dealing with a similar uncertainty. We are experimenting, trying new things and building on a history of providing meaningful creative opportunities for people of all ages, stages and walks of life. As with a work of art, we are using quality materials and trusting in the process to produce a great result. Our workshops continue to be the core of our programming, supported by exhibitions in the Sandra J. Blain and Loggia Galleries, our Artist-in-Residence program, arts education programs for local school children, conferences initiated and hosted on campus, and the Artist Outfitters supply store. These programs and activities are the essence of Arrowmont, along with the talented and generous instructors and staff who bring it all to life. They will continue for the next few years on our current campus. You can count on that. And, you can count on us to be vigilant in our efforts to secure the best possible long-term future for Arrowmont, and for your participation. We are committed to sustaining the vital energy and stimulating creative environment that is Arrowmont, regardless of location. Whether here in Gatlinburg, or some other community in the region, Arrowmont will be around for a long, long time. But don’t wait until the future to experience all that Arrowmont has to offer. With an exceptional season of workshops and events, the coming year has much to offer. The entire 2010 workshop, gallery and special event schedule is included in this catalog, to help you plan your participation. This year we are consolidating our spring, summer and fall sessions and offering one- and two-week workshops concurrently from May through October. A full weekend of workshops and a major symposium will close the season. Exhibitions and several special events are planned throughout the year. I hope you will join us and be part of our present, and our future, as we forge ahead.

Making Lively Pots

Clay: Cut & Construct Intensive

How Surface Describes Form

Altering the forms and surfaces of freshly thrown pots animates the work with spontaneity possible with soft clay. The possibilities you will work with include methods of squaring, ovaling, fluting and faceting. You will look at finishing touches such as attachments, lids, spouts, handles and feet, and trimming an oval to enhance and complete your pots. Particular emphasis will be placed on developing your personal skill and style. Topics of discussion will include raw glazing, single firing, firing a soda kiln, aesthetics and topics of interest to the class. Course Fee & ID: $475 | 2010CLY-May30 Gay Smith is a studio potter in North

Carolina; former Artist-in-Residence at the Archie Bray Foundation and Penland School; works exhibited internationally, including the Mint Museum of Craft + Design, Crocker Art Museum and Taipei County Yingge Ceramic Museum; featured in numerous publications, including Functional Pottery and Mark Making and Working with Clay.

Using the wheel as a springboard for idea and process, we will experiment with altering the round form, handbuilding and other methods of construction to realize your artistic curiosities. Demonstrations will include throwing component parts, cutting and reassembling forms off the original axis, stacking and nesting pieces, glazing, and more. We will work with stoneware clay, firing to cone 6 in oxidation for color. Discussion will include geometry, structure, ritual, design, and earning a living from making pots. Both functional and sculptural concerns will be addressed.

The friendly attitude of clay as a material allows us to easily explore self-expression through surface texture and decoration of handbuilt and wheel thrown functional forms. The handbuilding component will be primarily with slabs using paper patterns and simple molds. The forms we’ve created will then be used as the foundation for surface decoration achieved by adding to, subtracting from, and impressing the surface of the clay with various tools and found objects, or slip trailed decoration. An open mind, playful attitude and sense of humor, will be great assets for this week of study.

Form & Flow: Working with Nature

The Art of Exploration Part 1: The Wooden Form

This workshop focuses on using the forms, the live edges, and the imperfections of wood to create pieces that mirror the beauty and elemental feel of what is found so readily in the natural environment. In this work much of what appears “natural” will actually be highly manipulated through the use of clever techniques with knife work, hand carving and the use of machine tools. We will explore utensil construction from the use of branches; shallow vessel construction from logs; and the inlay of found stones into wood. Course Fee & ID: $550 | 2010WDW-May30

Take a journey through the many aspects of woodturning, from basic faceplate and spindle turning to the more complex hollow forms and multi-center sculptural work. Discover ways in which turned forms can be cut and manipulated and look for ways to inspire and personalize your turnings.

spending time at arrowmont

Most people come to Arrowmont to be immersed in art and away from the pressures and responsibilities of daily life. Housing, meals, evening slides, and almost 24-hour studio access provide everything you will need to be stimulated and inspired. Students may choose never to leave campus during their workshop session. However, if you want to get a drink, shop, or sightsee, Gatlinburg is just down the driveway. Located on 14 acres on a wooded hillside in downtown Gatlinburg, TN at the edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Arrowmont offers both a secluded retreat experience and a busy tourist center. The School is easily accessible by car and shuttle service is available from Knoxville McGhee Tyson Airport. Information will be sent with your registration confirmation. A typical one-week workshop session begins on Sunday with check-in between noon and 6:00 p.m. Classes begin at 7:30, following dinner at 5:30 and a Welcome and Orientation at 6:30. Class continues Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. but studios are generally open until 1:00 a.m. for students who wish to continue to work. Studio clean-up is Friday afternoon with departure on Saturday morning. Two-week classes

Most of the campus is wireless for those who bring a laptop. The Resident Artists host a reception and open studio each week. Dinner is an outdoor barbecue every Wednesday,

weather permitting. Images of instructor work are presented each evening in the auditorium as a great way to learn about other media and be inspired.

If you have special housing or other requirements, please discuss with the registrar at the time of registration so we can best meet your needs. A week or two at Arrowmont offers time to focus on your work. The combination of formal instruction and collaboration with other students will stimulate and inspire you to apply yourself fully to the task and accomplish more than you imagined.

Many gifts of all sizes to the Friends of Arrowmont Annual Fund combine to provide scholarships, support children’s programs, equip studios and sustain the School. When you become a Friend of Arrowmont with an annual gift, you strengthen your connection to this community and help others. All Friends of Arrowmont receive our e-Visions Newsletter and regular communications about events and opportunities on campus and around the country. Friends who contribute $100 or more also receive a discount on supplies in the Artist Outfitters Supply Store. Those who make gifts of $1,000 or more become members of our Signature Circle, serving as leaders and advisors to help plan for the future. Please consider adding a Friends of Arrowmont gift to your registration, send a gift in the mail or make a gift online at www.arrowmont.org through our secure server. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Gifts of stock and planned gifts are also welcomed. Both offer special tax advantages for the donor. Planned gifts allow you to make arrangements now to support Arrowmont in the future. In-kind gifts of equipment, supplies and materials help us keep our studios state-of-the-art. Check out the Studio Needs List on our website to see if you can help with an in-kind gift. For more information on how you can help, contact the development office at 865-436-5860, ext. 32. Programming has also been made possible in part through a joint agreement with the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.

Friends of Arrowmont Educational Assistance Fund Auctions Exciting auction events are being planned for 2010. Join us for two live auctions on campus, “mini-auctions” and real time live online auctions throughout the year! Auctions include outstanding art and craft generously donated by our instructors. Similar works by these artists are sold in fine galleries and held in museum collections worldwide. All proceeds from the auctions support

the Scholarship Fund at Arrowmont. Each campus event begins with a preview, bidder registration and a silent auction followed by the live auction. Refreshments are served and there is no cost to attend. Visit our website www.arrowmont. org for dates and details and join the mailing list to receive our newsletter and updates throughout the year.
