KENTUCK ART CENTER: MUSEUM GALLERY

May 7 - May 31

Tim Whitten developed a fondness for folk art upon moving from Alabama to South Carolina in 2009.  A self taught potter, he began by making functional wares like bowls and birdhouses in 2010 before quickly making a shift to face jug pottery. Many of his pieces draw inspiration from traditional American folk pottery with an emphasis on face jug pottery.  He has attended shows and festivals in Alabama and South Carolina and ships pieces throughout the country.
