Event description

Description

In this interactive talk, Matt will use his body of work to describe how the vision for your work can grow and evolve over time. He will ask the audience to explore ways to create new insights into their own work and explain how he developed a conceptual base that allowed his work to grow into unexpected areas. Audience participation is encouraged.

Doors open at 6 pm, talk starts at 6:30 pm. Light refreshment served. Matt will have examples of his latest work for sale.

This talk is being presented in coordination with a Matt Kelleher 2-day Sculptural Pot Workshop at the District Clay Center.
