Join us for a virtual field trip to an artist's studio! We will visit contemporary ceramic artists for a guided tour of their space, a demo of their process, and discussion about their work and how it has progressed throughout their career. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
During this 2-hour event, we will travel to San Francisco to the studio of Nicki Green. Nicki will be featured soon at LaiSun Keane Gallery in Boston. Gallery owner, Lai Sun Keane will be in conversation with the artist.
