This brochure on Bigmeat family pottery was created to accompany an exhibition of their work in 1979. The exhibition was held at Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual, Inc., an artisan cooperative. The exhibition included work by three daughters of potter Charlotte Welch Bigmeat (1887-1959), including Elizabeth (1919-2008), Mabel (1925-1991), and Louise (1932-2001). Members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee, Bigmeat potters were originally from the Painttown community of Cherokee. Held over the summer of 1979, the exhibition was sponsored by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board of the U.S. Department of the Interior, North Carolina Arts Council, and the American Indian Program of Save the Children.
