Fred Wiesener -
The Ohio River Valley Artists Guild announced recently that Fred Wiesener will conduct a ceramic workshop on August 27, 28, and 30 for construction of a 16-inch free standing ceramic sculpture and Sept. 10 and 13 for glazing and critique of final piece. The workshop will be held at Washington Hall, 2111 Old Main Street, Washington. Each session is from 6 -9 .m. This workshop is open to all skill levels.
Wiesener is a native of Houston, Texas and studied art at the Memphis Academy of Fine Arts and the Atlanta School of Arts. He obtained his bachelor of arts from Henderson State University, Arkadelphia, Ark., and his master of fine arts in ceramics from Syracuse University in Syracuse, N.Y. Fred has made his home in Maysville, where his studio overlooks the Ohio River. He works in clay, cast bronze, fibers and a combination of these materials. He states, “The running theme behind all my work is that of using light, space, calligraphic forms and reversible figure-ground relationships to create tension. to achieve this, I try to make the space that determines a specific edge against my forms just as important to the viewer as the figures themselves.”
For more information on the workshop, including cost and to register, please contact Toby Fried through Facebook, or [email protected], or drop by Washington Hall. ORVAG is looking forward to hosting this one of a kind workshop for the community.
