The Plates! (Pt. 1)
For the past couple of weeks I have been working with Debra Brehmer of the Portrait Society Gallery on a project that will be a part of a larger show that opens on November 20 called, "I Made This For You: Small Gestures in Clay." For this project, artists were prompted to paint a portrait of a Wisconsin artist that they admire on a hand-thrown ceramic plate. Last night a small gathering was held at the gallery in which some of the artists painted their plates in-house, and others picked up their plates and took them home with them to complete. Stay tuned for the second part of this post in which the finished plates will be revealed along with the Wisconsin artists that they chose to commemorate!
