TERRY WALKDEN has found art making to be a great pleasure and participates in both AOS Painting and Ceramic studios. He pays close attention to detail in all that he creates. Terry’s curiosity has led him to some unique experiments this year. In painting studio he made a composition of fabric applique by drawing with colored pencils, then hand-stitching to complete his design. In ceramic studio he carved a bas-relief plaque with a bird. Unfortunately, the large tile cracked in the firing, but with a supportive wooden mount the finished art is even more exceptional. Terry is a hard worker and often assists in AOS tile production.
Note everyone of the artists who make their masterpieces at Artists' Open Studio were at the June 16th opening reception of Visions Revealed 2017 exhibit. But, here is a photo that you might enjoy. If you missed the occasion, there are more opportunities to see the display at the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center Gallery. It is at Norwalk High School, 350 Shady Lane Drive, Norwalk, Ohio. Gallery hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:00 - 12:00. To end it all with a bang, come to our closing reception on Friday, July 21 from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.
Our studios are hopping with activity this Spring. We have displayed our work at the Firelands Area Art League Show last weekend. Now we are preparing for a special vendor opportunity in May at the Biggest Week in American Birding event at the Ottawa National Wildlife Reserve near Oak Harbor, Ohio.
