PORT CHESTER DAILY VOICE -- Farraday Newsome’s subject matter is drawn primarily from nature and the emotional allusions and metaphors found in nature. Her color work celebrates the light and exuberance of day, while her black-and-white work delves into the shadowy, more emotionally complex realm of night and darkness. Newsome grew up in the redwood forest of California. She studied biology as an undergraduate and later earned her graduate degree in Art, ceramics emphasis, from San Francisco State University (1987). She lives in the Sonoran desert of Arizona with fellow potter and husband Jeff Reich. Together they run Indigo Street Pottery in Mesa and teach pottery at the Mesa Arts Center.
