Join the DSA for a Clay Sculpture workshop lead by Bob Coates at the High Street Gallery. Workshop includes demo and talk by the artist followed by an opportunity to make a pinch-pot out of clay to take home with you (note: clay will not be fired, so pots will be for decorative purposes only). Registration is limited. $17 Members, $9 Student Members, $27 Non-Members. Register Today!
I work with clay, bronze, and mixed media. Some of my work has its roots in ancient cultures, in which natural atmospheric forces are often personified as gods and goddesses. For example, in ancient Greece, times of day, heavenly bodies, and the earth were embodied in mythical persona. My pieces speak of the beauty and flow of the natural world, and they reflect my concern for and love of the earth.
Bob currently teaches at Sinclair Community College and has exhibited his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions all around Ohio.
The purpose of the workshop series, Introducing..., is to acquaint DSA members and the community to different mediums and methods in the visual arts. In conjunction, the attendees will get to know the instructing artist, their background, and tips and tricks of their trade. The fee goes to compensate the artists’ time, so by attending you’ll not only gain knowledge in a specific medium, but you’ll also be supporting local artists! Future workshops may have an additional hands-on project, and in those cases an additional fee will be added to cover material costs.
