I'm going to follow the advice of a good friend and colleague who often tells me there's no need to re-create the wheel (or content, for that matter). Here's all you need to know about the upcoming clay tour. Now I need to go find out how to create an inventory list in PayPal Here. Hope to see you next weekend!
CLAY TOUR TO FEATURE OPEN STUDIOS AND POTTERY SALES
Three studio stops showcase work of eight accomplished clay artists
Local clay artists Gail Kendall, Amy Smith, Sharon Ohmberger and Su Harvey have organized a three-studio tour and sale of their work and the work of four guest artists from Nebraska and Minnesota.
The tour will take place Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2 from 10AM-4PM, followed by select online sales May 3rd. Guests can visit three locations in Lincoln, with two to three artists at each location:
7540 Nemaha – Home studio of Amy Smith; guest artists Sharon Ohmberger of Firth and Peter Scherr of Bellevue
3200 Van Dorn – Home studio of Gail Kendall; guest artists Ervin Dixon of Beatrice and Mark Cole of Lincoln
Mission Arts – 124 South 9th Street: Studio of Su Harvey of Eagle; guest artist Sean Scott of Battle Lake, MN
There is no charge to attend the tour. A variety of functional and sculptural work will be available for purchase and viewing at each location.
These types of events are important because they allow people to get to know the artist first- hand, gain a better understanding of the artwork and help to develop a deeper appreciation for the ceramic arts.
“Lincoln is becoming a mid-western Mecca for the high quality of ceramics presented in the community. The Lincoln Clay Tour follows on the heels of the renowned UNL semi-annual Pottery Sale, and the nationally prominent potters that exhibit at the LUX Center for the Arts. High Tech is balanced with High Touch and pottery and ceramics in general remind all of us how effectively human emotion can be expressed through handwork,” says Gail Kendall, Clay Tour participant and UNL Professor Emerita.
