Digging clay and making pots at Point of Rocks beach in Brewster are fond childhood memories for Annie C. Gerrity. It was a predictive experience. Clay has fascinated the artist ever since. Annie attended Rochester Institute of Technology’s School for American Craftsmen and Penland School of Crafts. She founded Ann Elizabeth Designs, a limited-edition pottery studio in Western, MA. Her work has been sold in craft galleries throughout the U.S.
Annie continues to create one-of-a-kind tiles, as well as large scale murals. Her largest mural to date measures 5’ X 15’. Six years ago, Annie moved to Brewster and began taking painting and sculpture classes. Her figurative sculptures were featured in the Cape Cod Museum of Art “Looking Forward” exhibition in December 2016 and “Light in a Dark Season” in 2019, as well as the “60/60” exhibit at Highfield Hall and Gardens this summer. Clay’s capacity to be transformed and its unpredictable results continue to gratify and challenge the artist. Sculpting pieces that express human emotions are the current goal of this artist.
