Guest Artist Demonstration: Ross Richmond & Randy Walker

Amphitheater Hot Shop
September 25 - 26, 2016
Guest Artist Demonstration: Ross Richmond & Randy Walker

See guest artists Ross Richmond and Randy Walker in a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on September 25 and 26.

Ross Richmond and Randy Walker have known each other since 1997. They are participating in an Instructor Collaborative Residency at The Studio this fall and hope to work on body of work that would combine their strengths in form, color, and using the boundaries of the material. While Walker focuses on a natural theme, Richmond often works with the figure. During their residency they, plan to create objects that combine the two, bringing realistic figures together with colors and objects found in nature. 

These demos are included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).
