Slide Presentation: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm.
Join Project Coordinators Alexandra Jelleberg and Bradley Klem as they present their work in joining east and west coast ceramic artists for GrowlerFest 2015 - a bi-coastal craft beer and local food tasting event and artist salon. Partnering with Project Art in Cummington, MA and Eutectic Gallery in Portland, OR these two artists bring food and craft together in a unique and inspiring way.
This event is free and open to the public. Seats are limited. To RSVP, sign up below or email Kathy King at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Through the intersection of collaboration and individual aesthetic, we hope to spark investment in handmade objects among a group of people who share a common interest. The enjoyment of food and drink can be greatly enriched by the experience of using the beautiful work artists so thoughtfully produce."
The “New Voices Lectures” are an on-going series highlighting some of the most talented emerging artists utilizing the ceramic medium in the field of contemporary art
