CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WV News) — A ceramic potter and a guitarist were the featured artists at Thursday’s Artist After Hours event in downtown Clarksburg.
Coordinated by the Cultural Foundation of Harrison County, the event had Lisa Giuliani and Chris Haddox showcase their talents and answer questions from the more than 30 attendees at the PWA Uptown Event Center.
Giuliani moved to Morgantown in 2004 to study at WVU’s Creative Arts Center, but started making ceramics about five years before at the University of Texas in Austin while studying for her undergraduate degree in studio arts. She now owns Lock House Studio and makes functional ceramics — such as mugs, bowls and vases.
“I usually work in big batches. I will throw two or three dozen mugs, but another day they are trimmed. What takes the longest is all of the decoration, being carved, painted, glazed. It’ll take me between five and six weeks to fully finish,” she said. “I’ve been captivated by clay since my first ceramics class at the University of Texas. I knew almost immediately that ceramics would be the path.”
Giuliani, who said science and math are often needed for her work, said she is often inspired by her daughters — 13-year-old Leila and 11-year-old Rosa — and teaching children. Her daughters also help in the studio on occasion.
Giuliani will be one of the five hosts for the annual Mo’Town Studio Tour on Oct. 15-16. More than a dozen local and regional artists, including the host artists, will be spotlighted.
Haddox, born in Logan and now a Morgantown resident, performed some of his music to the audience, including songs about shining his brown shoes and attending the Monongalia County Fair with his family.
Bridgeport’s Annie Neeley, an Artist After Hours Committee member, sought out Haddox to perform. The two played guitar together this summer in Morgantown but have known each other a few years thanks to Ron Sowell, a Charleston producer for Haddox’s latest album.
“He’s a really good guitar player. We’ve played a few shows together — we’ve done some cool events together. I’m a fan and love his writing and stories,” Neeley said. “It was just a matter of figuring out a date that worked.”
Established in 1972, The Cultural Foundation of Harrison County aims to foster an art-rich environment and encourage the development and appreciation of all art forms while promoting the growth and expansion of artistic, cultural and economic development.
Artist After Hours Committee Chair Davin Seamon said the Oct. 20 Artist After Hours will be held at the Benedum Civic Center in Bridgeport. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m.
