Joel Queen is an eighth-generation potter. Queen, a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee, has always been interested in arts and crafts, but has worked as an artist full-time only for the past four years. In 2005, he opened his own gallery near Cherokee to show and sell his work. Queen's creations have been displayed at the Smithsonian Institution, the British Museum in London, and at Monticello.
This summer, the Western Carolina University (WCU) Fine Art Museum at Bardo Arts Center explores elements of fine craft through exhibitions featuring printmaking and pottery. The first exhibit will display vitreographs, which are prints made with a glass matrix instead of a traditional material. The second exhibit features the work of Cherokee artists, bringing together both historic and contemporary pottery techniques.
