Plant Pocket Pottery Workshop with Maria Hughes

In this pottery class, you will create a plant hanger, or plant pocket. The method used for the project will be a hand-built slab method. You will have the option to add textures to the surface of the slab, if that fits into your design. The class should be about 2 hours-but there is more time if needed. Give up to 2.5 weeks for the piece of pottery to be completed (fired and glazed). $65 per person, all supplies included.

 If the morning class fills up and there is anyone else who wants to take the class, we will offer it again from 1-3!

Art Demonstration featuring Nicole Dikon 

Nicole was born on Maui, Hawaii and was raised in Ecuador, Vermont and Florida. She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in Painting at the University of Central Florida, where she studied under Ke Francis as her painting and printmaking professor, who is also a co-founder of Hoopsnake Press in Tupelo, MS. After receiving her Master’s of Fine Arts Degree in Printmaking from Temple University in Philadelphia, she was invited to Hoopsnake Press to become an Associate Artist.  Nicole now lives and works between Honolulu, Tupelo and Philadelphia.

Her practice is one that investigates botanical research, permacultural techniques and herbalist histories. Nicole’s intention in each of her projects is to find parallels between the process of making with the  processes and functions within ecological systems. Printmaking has been a constant tool in this investigation, that has led her down paths such as woodblock printing, etching, lithography, book and zine making, poetry, and experimentations with the physicality of paper in two and three dimensional form.  

The use of abstraction throughout the works has been a means of leading the viewer towards sensory memories with reference to landscape forms, textures and colors.  Most often experiences within the botanical world are that which can be hard to explain with words; abstraction helps to communicate this feeling.

Art Demonstration featuring Shelby Kizer

My name is Shelby Leigh Kizer. I am an artist living and working in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I graduated from William Carey with a Bachelors of Fine Art in painting and drawing in May of 2018.

 
In my work, I try to balance the beautiful, delicate watercolor techniques with unrefined marks painted from the gut. The physicality of working with different materials and layering them is something that holds my interest more so than just using a single material. The paintings on paper are layered with watercolor, pen, sharpies and acrylic paint. My paintings on canvas are layered with acrylic, pastel, and pencil. My paintings employ multi-step procedures to aggregate pigment to surface. Between steps I can take stock and make appropriate decisions. I have discovered in making these pieces that I understand the layering process better when using different materials, applied in sequence rather than all the same. The journey, the decision path, to the complete each of these pieces is just as important to me as the finished piece. View her work here!

Art Demonstration with Peyton Hutchinson

Join us on Saturday, September 26th from 10AM-2PM for an art demo featuring Peyton Hutchinson
 

Peyton says, “Hi! I am Peyton Hutchinson, an artist who loves color!  Growing up in Mississippi instilled in me a love of the outdoors, and the beauty and drama of nature continue to be my greatest creative inspiration.  As a painter, my greatest challenge is to try to  depict all of the gorgeous colors of the landscape.  Therefore, I consider myself a colorist of contemporary landscapes.

 I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and also studies at the Rhode Island School of Design.  During college, I ventured to the Marchutz School of Art in Aix en Provence, France where I fell madly in love with painting natural landscapes plein air.  That’s also where I discovered my new best friend, the palette knife!

 I live and work from my studio in Madison, Mississippi with my husband, Burney, our three children and two pups.  Locally, I have studied with renowned artists Jere Allen, Greg Cartmell, and Bob Tompkins.  I also studied impressionism with Italian artist Jerry Fresia, and Californian artist Camille Prezwodek.”
