Tulane University curator to discuss Newcomb Pottery designers Aug. 28

The Georgia Museum of Art will present a ­lecture by Sally Main, senior curator of the Newcomb Art Gallery at Tulane University, Aug. 28 at 5:30 p.m. The lecture, “Newcomb’s Designers: A Conscious Revolution,” is open free to the public.

Main, who earned her master’s degree in visual and performing arts from Tulane University, has spent more than 25 years studying Newcomb artifacts. Her talk, held in conjunction with the exhibition Women, Art and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise, will detail how the Newcomb Pottery taught self reliance to the 95 women who worked as the operation’s designers. On display at the art museum until Aug. 31, the exhibition contains 130 of the designers’ objects. It is the largest presentation of Newcomb arts and crafts in more than 25 years.
