Open Studio on Thursday, April 7th  from 5-9pm.image

Working from a model.

On March 1st I officially started working with models for my Art Initiative Grant.  For this grant I will create vessel forms where the human figure glazed imagery and the vessel form unify into one emotional expression.  I have been working with two different models and the two emotions that I have been working on are elated and despair.   Come check out my beginning vases and mugs during Open Studio on Thursday. I am blogging about this at least once a week.  Check out my blog.

The Pericles vases are back from the Guthrie Theater.  Come and see my vases with Pericles washed ashore after a shipwreck and the fisherman.

Presented by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA), Art-A-Whirl is an open studio tour in Northeast Minneapolis. It’s a great opportunity to tour private artist studios and galleries, connect with the artists, and purchase original artwork. Over the last 20 years, it has become the largest open studio tour in the country. This event is free and open to the public.
