Studio Visit with Scott McNeill

Sunday, Nov 14th.
10 am.
6849 South Juniper St, Tempe.

RSVP John Kaskela with your name, email address

During his stint with the Peace Corps (in the Honduras) Scott began working closely with many artisans that specialize in woodcraft and ornate relief woodcarving. During his work with these artists, he was welcomed into their workshops and community as if he had lived there his whole life.

Scott was invited to apprentice relief woodcarving in the workshop of a renowned master Honduran woodcarver. After four and a half years abroad, Scott returned to the United States and began painting a different composition of imagery on top of the carved forms. Seventeen years later, Scott McNeill’s multiple dimensional, painted relief sculptures stand out as a unique new form of visual expression.

There will be a 15 person limit, so AAG members only.
Masks are mandatory.

Studio Visit with Jim Holbert

RSVP John Kaskela with your name, email address you used to sign up for AGG

Jim earned a fine arts degree in ceramics from the University of New Hampshire. He worked as a clay artist in New Hampshire before moving his family to Arizona. Here, he constructed a new studio space from metal shipping containers and through this process became

fascinated with metal as a medium. Jim combines clay and metal in sculpture that reflect a connection to the natural world and the history of art and artifacts across cultures. He draws inspiration from the desert landscape as well as his love of the forms, symbols, and architecture of the ancient world. Clay and metal are primitive; they tell the stories of our past. They are the raw materials taken from out natural world and transformed through the processes of heat and pressure. They have a permanence that challenges our modern, technology-driven life.

No attendance limit. AAG members only. Masks required inside, outside optional.
