Kristin C. Law is the Art Programs & Marketing Director for Black Belt Treasures Cultural Arts Center and owner of Possum Pottery & Fine Art. She graduated with a BFA in Ceramics/Art History from the University of Montevallo, spent eight years as the Curator of Collections at the Hermitage Museum & Gardens and as Ceramics Instructor at the Hermitage Visual Arts School in Norfolk, Virginia. After moving home to Alabama in 2009, Kristin was re-introduced to Black Belt culture and artists, where the people, stories, traditions, art and history of the region have inspired and shaped her desire to share the treasures of the Black Belt with the world. Kristin spent two years as the Black Belt Arts Initiative Coordinator at Black Belt Community Foundation, where she proudly served as Co-Director of the Black Belt 100 Lenses project.
Kristin has worked at Black Belt Treasures Cultural Arts Center for eight years – working directly with area artists while helping to grow art and educational programs for youth and adults alike across Alabama’s Black Belt region. Kristin was appointed by the Governor of Alabama to the 2016-2017 State Course of Study Committee: Arts and Foreign Languages for Visual Arts, is on the Board of the Alabama Craft Council, is the Co-President for Wilcox ArtWorks, Chairperson of the University of Montevallo Black Belt Alumni Group, Vice-President of the Wilcox Area Chamber of Commerce Board, and is the Chairman of the Black Belt Arts Alive committee. In her “spare time”, she treasures every opportunity to create art and share her love for ceramics, printmaking, photography, mixed media, and regional art history with youth and adults alike through the Arts Enrichment programs at Black Belt Treasures, as a presenter at regional programs including the Alabama Clay Conference, and was juried in as a ceramics artist at the 47th Kentuck Art Festival in October 2018 and a guest demonstrating artist in October 2020 at the 48th Kentuck Art Festival.
My inspiration comes from the people, stories, traditions, and history of Alabama's Black Belt region, fused with my love of Asian art and culture. I love to teach art, all art, to students of all ages and skill levels. My goal is to inspire a love of and curiosity for creating.
