The Swansons had a modest home collection of pottery in 1999, when they visited with potter and local historian Michael Crocker at his studio and were inspired to expand their interests in the folk art tradition. At Michael Crocker's suggestion, the Swansons acquired a significant private collection of 40 items that led them to build the present inventory of more than 150 pieces.

This Southern folk art and Georgia pottery exhibition is co-curated by Steve Slotin and Michael A. Crocker.

An opening reception for the exhibit is scheduled for Thursday, March 10, from 6-8 p.m., featuring an informal Gallery Talk by co-curators Slotin and Crocker at 7 p.m.
Crocker, curator of the folk pottery component of the exhibit, was heavily involved with the formation of the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia in Sautee Nacoochee and is a co-curator there. He is also a historian, collector and folk potter. Both curators loaned pieces from their personal collections for the Hudgens Center's exhibit.
The exhibit showcases works by Southern folk artists and potters, such as a collection of works by the historically significant North Georgia Meaders’ family potters, including Cheever, Arie and Lanier Meaders face jugs on loan from Crocker.

These pots tell the story of a way of life when folks used stoneware for the preparation, preservation, storage and transportation of food and drink," says Michael Crocker, a dealer, collector and historian of the pottery making skill. A potter himself, Crocker has been turning pots with a kick wheel and hand-dug clay for over 20 years. "I see not only the craft slipping away but the story of it," he says. "This museum will help maintain the integrity and importance of this great tradition. Crocker serves as co-curator of the museum.

The couple began collecting in earnest after meeting Crocker.
Six years ago, they gathered a committee to plan the museum, which included Crocker, Brubaker, noted Atlanta Architect Robert Cain and John Burrison, Georgia State University folklorist and author of 1983's "Brothers in Clay: the Story of Georgia Folk Pottery.
"Lanier Meaders came along during a time of transition from utilitarian items of pottery to becoming collectible," adds Crocker.
