Maggie Wilson pottery samples

When you encounter my pieces, you get a glimpse of my passion for ceramics, home, and tradition. The inspiration for this exhibit relies most heavily on the roots of my humble hometown, Blairstown, NJ, a quaint haven with a rich history. When I began attending the University, I realized there was no longer cow farm down the road, and there was a lack of neighborhood that I was so accustomed to back home. My interest in home was sparked, and I developed a new appreciation for its personality and structure. When you look at these pieces, you are seeing my home from my perspective in the form of pots. To venture through this exhibit is to walk down main street, visit the church, and stop by the river, just as I would growing up.

Biography

Maggie Wilson is Cairn University’s first arts student graduate. Majoring in studio art with a focus in ceramics, Maggie is also the first senior to exhibit work in the Eastburn gallery. Maggie was born to her parents, Lily and Frank Wilson, as an only child and was raised in Blairstown, NJ. Her work is often inspired by tradition, home, and nostalgia. She looks forward to setting a strong precedent in the field of pottery. Her artwork has been exhibited in the student photo galleries, fine arts galleries, and summer exhibits at the University.
