Demonstrations Monday April 20 & Tuesday April 21 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Ceramics Studio
As a child, Elizabeth Kendall played happily in her grandmother's sewing room, surrounded by fabric scraps and threads. She watched as her grandmother sewed Barbie Doll dresses, beautifully finished with French seams. Kendall didn't end up pursuing a textile career, but those early impressions are deeply embedded in her ceramic art. The sculptor's spare, sensuous abstractions are shorthand memories coded in clay.
