Nash’s ceramic sculptures combine 15th Century Benin and 18th Century French Nouveau, creating what he has coined “African Nouveau”. He uses a variety of techniques to work with stoneware, earthenware, terracotta or porcelain.

The benefit will include a silent auction, live music, hors d’oeurves, and a wine tasting in partnership with Freedom Classic Festival.

The MEGA Mentors Fine Art Benefit and Sale is the annual fundraiser to support the organization’s mission to provide mentors and positive role models to under-represented students in Chesterfield County Public Schools.
