2nd Act -
Cindy Barnett has been a potter since 1973 where she apprenticed to a studio potter in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Coming to Florida in 1975, Cindy threw pots and did art shows until 1997, when her professional life as a Speech-Language Pathologist and clinical faculty at the University of Florida became her major focus. In August of 2017, the UF Reitz Union Arts and Crafts Center reopened after a complete renovation, serendipitously Cindy walked in the first day they reopened, and CB Pottery began after a 20 year hiatus.. Spring Arts Festival 2018, Thornebrook Arts Festival, the Downtown Arts Festival, the Artisan's Guild, Gainesville Fine Arts Association, and now a complete, compact, home studio has emerged. Grateful to be able to be immersed in this limitless art form, and be surrounded by a community of creativity and positive energy, and now the ability to invite the community to see the process happen in real time.
