Teaching Young Artists
Through the Ohio Arts Council's Teaching Artist program, I will be working with students from St. Mary's Central Catholic School in Sandusky in March. We are working together to create "Personal Narrative Sculpture". I will post pics when I have them!
In April I will be working with a group of students in Canton through the Canton Museum of Art to create a Visual Language that they can access for creating drawings, paintings and sculpture.
I continue to be involved in working with young artists around Cleveland through Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio.
Youth and Beauty are a marriage made in heaven and I love the energy that ceramics brings to young artists!
Akron Art Museum Collection
This fall, I was delighted to have one of my favorite pieces, "The Dirty Dozen", accessioned into the permanent collection of the Akron Art Museum. I donated the piece in honor of Dr. Mitchell Kahan's steadfast and courageous service of the museum for his tenure of 26 years! He is a force of Nature and I am thrilled to honor him with my "delicious" visual feast!
Canton Museum of Art Permanent Collection
"Under Water" was accessioned into the permanent collection of the Canton Museum of Art. It is exciting for me to have a piece like this preserved for our local community to share.
I was at Penland for a week in October helping my friend Jenny Mendes with her fall intensive. I met amazing humans doing their best to communicate visually with clay! I am a revitalized and changed woman.
