The semester has flown by, and as everyone finishes up their last week of classes we say goodbye to yet another end of semester ceramics show. Entitled Terraform, this year’s fall show came and went in a flurry of cleaning, sweeping, mopping painting, and installing. The weekend started out early, with the Patron Preview opening on Thursday, the 4th, and the show opening to the public on Friday, the 5th. There was plenty of good food, good friends, and–of course–good artwork for all to share. Special thanks go to all of the ceramics students and faculty for pulling together this fantastic show in between final critiques, other classes, and catching sleep!! Congrats to all! Here are a few shots from the show to share the wonderful experiences and work:
I’m excited to announce a return to Anderson Ranch Arts Center next summer to teach this upcoming workshop! Anderson Ranch Arts Center holds a very special place in my heart, and it is a fantastic place to immerse in art-making and learning.
Enrollment begins January 2, 2015.
My work is featured in this new book, available January 2015: Contemporary America Print Makers, by E. Ashley Rooney and Stephanie Standish. (Schiffer Publishing). This book highlights more than seventy print-based artists and thirty print shops from across the United States whose work embraces the history and techniques of traditional printmaking while pushing the bounds of new print media.

. The winner will be announced January 21, 2015.
Cultural ReProducers: Propositions, Manifestos & Experiments is finally in print! This risographed think-tank explores the intersection of contemporary artmaking and family life through text and images from 28 international artists published by and with the collective Temporary Services in glorious duotone with a centerfoldout poster of the Cultural ReProducers manifesto. Due to the multilayered nature of the zine (44 pages in 3 colors with a centerfoldout manifesto poster) it was painstakingly collated, folded and stapled by hand and there are just 400-ish copies in existence.
Orders within the United States are just $7 US plus shipping ($8.50 postpaid). You can support the work of Cultural ReProducers by ordering your copies right here.
Thanks to Temporary Services the zine will also soon be available as a lovely e-book and archival PDFs at $2 each through their imprint Half Letter Press.
