NEW ORLEANS, LA.- The beauty and innovation of contemporary ceramics are featured at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. “2009 North Carolina Living Treasures: Ceramics by Cynthia Bringle and Norm Schulman,” on view until April 30, 2009, will showcase the works of these two craft icons in ceramics.

Organized by the University of North Carolina/Wilmington, Museum of World Cultures, William Madison Randall Library, this exhibition is part of a traveling show to support the UNCW North Carolina’s biannual “Living Treasures” award, which recognizes master artists who work in traditional arts and crafts in North Carolina.

Previous “Living Treasures” artists include: Julian Guthrie (boatwright), Bea Hensley (blacksmith), Harvey Littleton (glass artist), Arval Woody (furniture maker) and Billie Ruth Sudduth (basket weaver).
