CHERRYVILLE, N.C. –– Come and “clay” at the Cherry Blossom Festival, this Saturday.

According to executive director Kim George of the Gaston Arts Council, her group and Bluegill Pottery are coming together for “Create in Clay,” which is sure to be a fun part of the Cherryville cheer.

Vicki Gill of Bluegill Pottery will have a booth, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., featuring her own clay creations, as well as a work space where folks can create their own small clay pieces. The pieces will be left with Gill to dry and then glazed and fired. The finished works may be picked up at the Gaston Arts Council offices or at Bluegill Pottery, both in Gastonia. Or they may be mailed to those from out of town, as George explained.

“It requires no experience,” she said, “and there is no cost to the participants. Just come and play in the clay!”

George continued that the Gaston Arts Council was founded in 1979. One of its key responsibilities is developing and co-ordinating creative programming. This is a new program to connect artists and their surrounding communities.

More information about the council is on the Website at

Gill has been making clay creations for more than 20 years. One of her goals as an artist is sharing the love of creating work in clay through her artwork and by teaching classes. She is honored to be working with the arts council on this project. More information about Bluegill Pottery is at

To learn more, call Gill at (704) 678-6195 or George at (704) 853-2787.
