Hometown Reception honoring Michael Sherrill

  • Nationally-recognized Bat Cave artist featured in traveling retrospective exhibit;

  • Short film illuminates the path of his career

The Gallery at Flat Rock is pleased to host a special reception in honor of artist Michael Sherrill at the gallery at 1 p.m. on January 19. The event will include a screening of a mini-documentary film detailing the career path of one of the most respected artists living in North Carolina. A retrospective exhibit of Sherrill’s work in ceramic, metal and glass is currently on display at the Mint Museum in Charlotte until April 7. 

Sherrill’s early work revealed his innate talent for innovative thinking about shape and color as a clay artist. His later works, largely inspired by the natural forms of plants that surround his studio, located deep in a mountain cove in the Bat Cave area of Henderson County, reveal Sherrill’s continued focus on form and color while pushing structural limits using his innovative techniques in manipulating materials to create forms that reveal his careful observations of the outer world.

Join us for the unique opportunity to meet one of North Carolina’s most respected artists.


This event is free and open to the public, but participants are required to submit an RSVP in order to attend. Those interested can call the gallery at 828-698-7000 or contact The Gallery here.
