In light of the cases of COVID we now have on island and in an abundance of caution for the welfare of our volunteers and community, we are closing the Art Center until Wednesday, 10/28 to allow for full tracing and to ensure everyone’s safety. This includes: postponing any and all classes and limited-to-no admittance to the gallery, ceramics studio and wood shop.
Everyone, please stay safe, wear your mask and socially distance if you MUST go out. We will stay strong and overcome this by working together to stay safe.
We are very pleased that master ceramicist Jack Iizuka will visit our studio on Tuesday March 20 for informal demonstrations and discussion. Jack will be here on island for one day only. Born in Ichihara City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan, Iizuka is a master at the sgraffito technique, which involves the etching and carving of intricate designs into ceramic surfaces. He holds a master’s degree in ceramics from California State University and a bachelor’s degree in art from Loma Linda University. Jack will be in the ceramics studio around 10:30 until early afternoon followed by pot luck. Stop by for inspiration and amazement!
