This Month's Featured Artist: Laura Ann Kay
On Thursday March 17th 2016, we will be having an art reception for Oakland artist Laura Ann Kay from 6-9pm. Her whimsical ceramic art pieces are perfect for Spring with their beautful glazes and interesting themes. Stop by for refreshments and meet Laura in person!
Laura Ann Kay's affinity for ceramics began in 2010. Initially, she created small pieces, the kind of enchanted objects she might have collected as a child and stashed in her jean pockets.
She's since developed a handful of themes such as Bumps - textured pieces created by using bits of broken pen parts, straws, and paint brush handles; Lions, Fish, and Birds - which are either painted or carved; and the featured work of this show: Wall hangings/faces. Here, again, pen parts, eucalyptus pods, and other various found objects contribute to her designs and textures. These playful, often colorful, pieces capture Laura's affection for nature; trees, birds, sky, sun, and the stars.
