Piedmont Craftsmen Receives Grant

Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc. Receives Grant from
The Winston-Salem Foundation

Support for 50th Anniversary History Project

 WS Foundation Logo

(Winston-Salem, NC) The Board of Directors and Staff on behalf of our Supporting and Exhibiting Members are pleased to announce that Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc. has been awarded a grant from The Winston-Salem Foundation. This grant for $25,000 will support Piedmont Craftsmen’s 50th Anniversary History Project. The funds for the grant were provided by the Charles Babcock, Jr. Field of Interest Fund, the Eisenberg Family Fund for Arts and Culture and the Vicki Van Liere Helms Art Fund.

 Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc. grew out of a series of kitchen table conversations held by a small group of makers of fine craft and lovers of quality examples of our material culture. The guild has been nurtured and strengthened over its 48+ year history by the ongoing dialogue between makers and collectors, and among fellow craftsmen as well as fellow craft lovers. November 2013 will mark our 50th Anniversary. In keeping with our missionas an education and arts organization that is dedicated to the promotion of fine traditional and contemporary craft/arts through a wide variety of educational and membership activities and services for the benefit of the community, the 50thAnniversary History Project will dovetail with all aspects of Piedmont Craftsmen’s programming. The focus will be on creating multi-media content that can be used in numerous settings and presented to a variety of audiences. We envision producing a series of articles, photographic storyboards, and multi-media, web ready “modules” that explore our 50 year history, our crafts artists, founding and supporting members, as well as a look at the contemporary craft scene.

Herb Cohen & José Fumero

Mint Museum of Art celebrates underappreciated talent

By Lawrence Toppman
Posted: Friday, Jul. 13, 2012
The Charlotte Observer

The white Hebrew letters march around the rim of the elegant brown bowl in a declaration never to be refuted: “I Will Be What I Will Be.”

The ceramicist didn’t mean that as a personal manifesto: It’s a slight alteration of the words Moses heard God speak from the burning bush. Yet “Sophisticated Surfaces: The Pottery of Herb Cohen” proves Cohen was destined to produce the complex and deceptively simple art in this seven-decade retrospective at the Mint Museum of Art.

And in a larger sense, Cohen has been destined to spend the last 56 of those years with fellow artist José Augustín Fumero, while their personal and professional lives intertwined like colorful fibers in a Fumero painting.

Together they worked in the 1960s and ’70s at the Mint’s Golden Circle Theatre. Together they abandoned well-paying white-collar jobs to bolt for Blowing Rock, committing themselves to uncertain (if eventually successful) lives as artists. There, they helped jump-start the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum, on whose board they still serve as “founders emeritus.”

Together they returned to Charlotte two years ago, filling a condominium in Cotswold with pots and paintings and bonhomie. (An interview is likely to lead to lunch, perhaps with a Fumero pâté or handmade Cohen ice cream.)

And together, in their 80s, they have launched careers inspired by obstacles.

A hand tremor prevents Cohen from controlling clay on a wheel, so he builds up pieces by hand. (You’ll see a few in the Mint show, through Jan. 8.) The design-oriented Fumero, whose vision has deteriorated throughout his life, aims to create a simple, multiple-use computer keyboard for people who have similar conditions.

They have distinct identities. Cohen is the introvert who created subtle glazes and says without false modesty that he’s not sure he merits a solo show at the Mint. Fumero is the extrovert whose bold paintings grab your lapels: His portrait of a nun, a work his friends covet, reveals a woman who has guessed all your secrets. But you can understand why those friends almost speak of them as “HerbandJosé.”

“I’ve often told them they’re my uncles of choice,” says June Watts-Mistry, who (with husband Adi Mistry) has bought pieces by both. “I didn’t have any real uncles I liked that much. I have never heard Herb and José say a negative thing about another person, and that makes them a joy to be around.

“Their generosity is astounding in every way, whether having people over for dinner or having an artist stop by for a critique. It seems you can’t ask them anything and get a ‘no.’ ”

Of course, without one loud “No!” to conformity, Cohen and Fumero would not be where they are today.

Different paths, one goal

It can find new life as a greeting card, a wedding invitation, a bookmark or a framed piece of adorned art. All that’s needed is a shredder, a blender, lots of water, a couple of frames (one with a screen), a piece of cardboard and a sponge-paper towel.

News about two Exhibiting Members

Those of you who were at the Fair might have noticed the absence of Lucius DuBose, Exhibiting Member in Printmaking. He had a valid reason for not being there, namely, heart bypass surgery. He is home and doing well, and very grateful (1) that he was diagnosed before they left home to come to Winston-Salem, (2) that he received such excellent care at Vanderbilt in his home town of Nashville, TN, and (3) for all the good thoughts, prayers, and cards that have come his way. Here is a note from Lenda’s latest email to us: “I was aware all last weekend of folks at the fair thinking of us, which brought great comfort. One of the pleasant surprises of having this happen when we were scheduled to be at the fair is we have gotten several cards from people who must be customers, whose names we sometimes recognize, but without a face, we have no idea who they are. Each one puts a smile on our faces. People are so kind to take the time to contact us, and we are so grateful for all the healing thoughts, prayers, and good wishes.”
If anyone would like to send Lucius a card, please contact Deb and she’ll give you his mailing address.
