Winning Studio!

Urban Culture Project’s first biennial open studios was a huge success in December! Hope to see everyone again in May. Here are images from the  pARTnership studios during the opening reception.

Visitors were encouraged to vote for the best studio space and best individual studio, also new to the program.

Congratulations to Kate Clements for winning the top prize!


She sure did deserve it for her adorable retail shop and impeccable exhibition display. What I wonder is, how did Town Pavilion spend their winnings?

City Center, if you have shots from the weekend please post!

This year Open Studios will have kid friendly opportunities! Come see Calder Kamin’s Love Seat at pARTnership Place

The Love Seat is an interactive furry chair that features hybrid ceramic puppy bellies and audio of pet owners speaking sweet sentiments to their dogs. UCP Open Studio visitors, of all ages, are welcome to participate, and consider the very human ways we interact with animals.

In addition to The Love Seat there will be two other Love Seat listening stations.(Basically CD players and headphones with puppy ears!) I will also have several new sculptures in progress on display, and lots of ceramic gifts for sale!

Bird Ornaments by Calder $15 each

But I hope you come to our open Studios on the third firday of every month.
