Author’s Showcase: Artist Talk & Demo with Dave Porter
August 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm| Free
Join us for an Author’s Showcase: Artist Talk & Demonstration with artist Dave Porter of Artisan Gallery’s August exhibition, “Vibrant Ground”. Porter will share his creative process and concept of his work such as where he finds natural materials, how he transforms a piece in nature into a piece of art with his dual background in engineering and studio art, and what tools he would use to create the effect he looks for, etc. Porter will do a wood carving demonstration following a Q&A session.
