The Freemans create distinctive and playful pottery, seeking to share individuality with an over processed, mass produced world. Hints of the past and thoughts of the future emerge in their individual pots as they work to create wares to be used for generations to come. Their exhibit, titled “Interfuse” is on display through September 23 in the Mingenback Art Gallery.
These events are free and open to the public.
