Mike Durham to throw pots in library as artist series concludes

Artist and educator Mike Durham will create pottery at the Asheboro Public Library in the last demonstration for the Summer Artist Series, 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, July 28.

Durham currently works in salt-glazed pottery, found object sculpture and habitat design for nature science centers. A former N.C. Art Educator of the Year, he has taught art, pottery, sculpture and photography in the Guilford and Randolph County schools, and has instructed pottery at Randolph and Montgomery community colleges.

He currently serves as president of the Randolph Arts Guild, and assists in the planning and organization of the N.C. Pottery Conference.

The artist series has brought local performers and artists to the library on Tuesday afternoons to demonstrate their work for the public. The demos are free and the public is invited to observe.

The series is part of the “Express Yourself @ Your Library” Summer Reading Program for teens, and is supported by the Friends of the Library.
