CF Citrus to Host 'Green Dragon' Pottery Exhibit
Oct. 31, 2011
The College of Central Florida will feature the “Green Dragon Collection” by artist Lee Partin at the Citrus Campus in November.
The pottery exhibit will be open Nov. 7-30 in the upstairs exhibition hall in the Dorothea G. Jerome Building, 3800 S. Lecanto Highway in Lecanto. Exhibit hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday. The exhibit will be closed on weekends. There will be a reception on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend the exhibition or reception, which are made possible by the CF Foundation and the CF Institute for Community Advancement.
“I can’t imagine my life without my art. It keeps me balanced,” said Partin. “I have called this the ‘Green Dragon Collection’ as the two signature pieces are finished in green dragon glaze and are adorned with dragon decoration. The dragon thread is woven throughout my life. I was born in the year of the dragon, our company is called Dragonworks, and in some circles I am known as the Dragon Lady.”
Partin lives in Homosassa, has worked for the Citrus County School Board for 22 years and has taught pottery with the CF Institute for 15 years. In her 40 years as a potter, she has won numerous awards, including Best in Show. She also spins, weaves and makes hot glass beads and fused glass.
