Artist In Residence Update


In August we will welcome two new AIRs, Elina Jurado and Kedrick McKenzie. 

We wish the best to Kelsie and Liz and thank them for all that they have done.  (Make sure you come to their exit show, PearlyAshy!!!!)  Jenna will be with us another year!

Here are photos of the AIRs and their work.  Please give a warm welcome to the new folks when you see them....!

New Signage

As August approaches we would like to remind everyone that Liz and Kelsie will be leaving and we have two new Artists in Residence beginning - Elina Jurado and Kedrick McKenzie. As the new residents settle we ask that you please note the newly added "Restricted Area: Employees Only" signs on the Kiln room doors, and  "Private" signs on the studio doors. We encourage question asking in all common areas, as we care about the spread of knowledge and education. But to ensure efficiency, safety, and respect of personal space, we want to remind you that under no circumstances should you be entering the private studio spaces or Kiln room. If you have any questions feel free to ask, and you can always check with the Monitor on duty as well. Thank you for your cooperation.






Monitors Needed!!!!

Who doesn't want free studio time, shelf space and a key to the building??!!!!  For a time commitment of 8-16 hours a month, you can help out the guild and enjoy those benefits! 

We are currently seeking monitors for the following shifts:

Saturday 10-2, Every Other Week

Saturday 2-6, Every Other Week

Sunday 1-5, Every Other Week

Fill out an application at the guild or contact Char Anderson (charbaby50@gmail.com) to be considered!
