“Sourcing the Local” Guest Lecture with Alleghany Meadows

Monday, January 27

Lee Hall 1, 323 Fernow St Clemson, SC 29634

6 p.m.


What is local?  Artist, gallerist, entrepreneur and nomad Alleghany Meadows believes the local can be where ever the road may take you.  Owner and operator of the Artstream Gallery since 2001, Alleghany has crisscrossed the country bringing the best of contemporary functional ceramic artist awareness to major conferences (NCECA, CAA) and art fairs, while maintaining an active individual studio practice and co-ownership of the successful Harvey/Meadows Gallery in Carbondale, CO.  Recent trends in ceramics as well as contemporary art support environmental concerns – the reduction of mass-produced waste and the longevity of use in handmade pottery are major concerns of contemporary functional artists, many of whom subscribe to innovative models of sustainability.  Alleghany will speak about his personal artwork and the Artstream Ceramic Library, on loan to Clemson University.  

Alleghany Meadows is a studio potter in Carbondale, Colorado. He received his M.F.A. from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, New York, and his BA from Pitzer College, Claremont, CA. He apprenticed with Takashi Nakazato, Karatsu, Japan, received a Watson Foundation Fellowship for field study of potters in Nepal, and was an artist in residence at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Snowmass Village, CO.
