THE GALLERY Palestine, Texas Presents David Hendley and Gregory Zeorlin

 Pink Stake Gregory Zeorlin 2010

THE GALLERY, sponsored by the Anderson County Arts Council at 115 W Spring Street, Palestine, TX, is proud to present the work of David Hendley, potter, of Maydelle, Texas, and clay sculptural work of Gregory Zeorlin of Flint, Texas, for the month of November.

DAVID HENDLEY operates The Old Farmhouse Pottery one mile west of Maydelle.  He earned his Master's Degree pioneering techniques of extruding clay. He crafts unique glazes and screw-lids in clay jars.  His art is beautiul, unique and useable. See  David will provide photographs of his molding and kiln processes.

David is also a singer/songwriter.  His trademark song is The Cobalt Blues, found in his album "Music to Extrude By" and recorded by The Extrudinaires.  David credits himself as author, poet, wizard, scholar, politician and super-hero (often doing the work of four potters at once). He does not lack for humor.

Officially his band is named The  Wahooligans.  The Old Farmhouse Pottery will host ther 19th Annual Open House on November 20th and 21st.

GREGORY ZEORLIN will come to THE GALLERY from an exhibit at The Beverly and Sam Ross Gallery at Christian Brothers University at Memphis, TN.  The exhibit has three themes that portray Greg's versatility: his unique artclocks, stick-figure sculptures that depict people doing ordinary things and florals (some of them using ikebana, the Japanese art of floral arrangement).

Gregory is a 1978 graduate of Christian Brothers University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities, then a Masters of Fine Art at New York State College of Art and Design at Alfred University.  His prize-winning art is represented in many private and public collections and his art has been awarded many exhibits throughout the United States.

THE GALLERY will offer to the public a reception with the artists on Saturday, November 6, from 5-8 p.m. Gallery hours are Thursday-Saturday from 10-5.
