VIROQUA - In February VIVA Gallery will feature the work of Greg Cheesebro, studio potter from Viroqua. Greg’s new work will be unveiled at VIVA’s First Thursday reception on February 6.
Greg creates wheel-thrown stoneware and porcelain that is turned, slipped or pulled, then high-fired in electric or wood-fired kilns. He makes his functional pottery in his home studio where he forms his clay pieces, glazes and fires them in an electric kiln, readying a body of work that will be sold at art festival and fairs throughout the summer.
Greg’s pottery and the works of VIVA’s 25 member artists will be featured at VIVA’s First Thursday reception on February 6 from 5 to 7 p.m., and throughout the month of February. The gallery is located at 217 South Main Street in Viroqua.
