Fine Art in Applied Design from the University of Arkansas at Little
Rock with a concentration in metals. Ally is looking forward to
teaching in the Pocosin Arts jewelry studio and said, 'That
feeling you get when you create something is empowering and I want to
share it with others'. She is also looking forward to developing her
own jewelry style and being close to the main source of inspiration in
her work, the sea.

Come See Pocosin Arts new Riverside
What's inside are studios
with lots of natural light, a kitchen, dining area, offices and 10
lodge rooms. Each room has its own bathroom and ample space.
There is a lounge area that is perfect for relaxing or watching
presentations on a 64 inch screen and it has a great balcony
overlooking the Scuppernong River that is great for pulling up a chair
and watching a sunset.
On Saturday, October 12, 2013, along with East Carolina University, who
will be using the lodge for a variety of programs through December, we
will host an open house during the weekend of Riverfest. The
Riverside Lodge is located directly across the street from the historic
Davis and Coffield building which is home to our main office, resident
artist apartment, and our metals and clay studios.

After Hurricane Irene
|On August 27, 2011 Hurricane Irene Passed through
Columbia, depositing 14 inches of rain.
The Scuppernong River flooded the
town and inundated the first floor of our studios with
contaminated river water. This was a historic
flood event in our region and for the town of
Columbia. Hardest hit was our clay studio and we lost most of our
kilns, furnishings and equipment. The studio
is still closed for regular classes but we are
looking forward to resuming classes as soon as
possible. Thank you for your patience as
