FLASH SHOW & SALE
RUST, STEEL, AND STEAM: THE TINMAN TEAPOTS
In this series, Hendershot “explores the universal motif of teapot, reflecting our fantasies, our hopes, our obsessions.  In doing so, [he] hopes to develop them into seemingly animate or living things . . . machines that might power up on their own and take on personalities much like their creators.”  Come see how these beautiful creations live on a fine line between machine and organism.

OPEN HOURS

WORKSHOP: LEARNING TO TALK ABOUT YOUR ART

Workshop Description:
Facilitated by award winning educator Jerry Hendershot,, this workshop will examine art samples to expand our thinking about how we can successfully speak about our own art.

Using an inquiry-based approach, the group will compare effective and ineffective samples of artist statements, and participants will then work to write successful statements of their own.

Workshop Preparation

  • After registration, Mr. Hendershot will email articles to read prior to the workshop.
  • Participants should bring a laptop with images of their work or printed examples of their work.
  • Participants should bring their writing materials of choice (laptop, paper/pencil).

FREE / REGISTRATION REQUIRED
