Event spotlights Mint Hill Arts and Pottery 51

The first gallery crawl of the season saw a steady flow of visitors to the Mint Hill Arts gallery as well as Pottery 51.

The Friday night event was held in conjunction with the opening of the “People’s Choice” show and the Mint Hill Arts Gallery was buzzing with visitors comparing notes and sharing opinions on pieces submitted by local residents. 

The winners of this show are selected by popular public vote. Categories include Best in Show, Most Beautiful, Funniest, Most Creative, and Best “Junk” Art, which will be awarded for the best use of recycled materials.
Judging continues throughout the month. Visit the gallery, located at 11205 Lawyers Road, Mint Hill, to view the pieces, then, cast your vote for your favorites by filling out the ballot and dropping it in the official ballot box.
David McGee was named Volunteer of the Month at the opening reception, and Ann Litaker from the Mint Hill Women’s Club presented a check for $250 to the Mint Hill Arts.
At Pottery 51, visitors had the opportunity to enjoy the newly completed covered patio. Potters had their pieces on display and for sale.
Visitors enjoyed tours of the studio, music, refreshments, and an opportunity to talk with the local potters.
Pottery 51 is located at 7714 Matthews-Mint Hill Road.
