Marc Digeros and Other Boys That Get Low

by Arthur of Arthur Halvorsen Ceramics

I received an email about 3 weeks ago asking if I-
1. Had work on hand, about 10 pieces, and
2. If I was interested in being part of a group show at Red Star Studios in Kansas City MO.

I screamed! I never thought I would reach this point where galleries are reaching out to me and asking if I want to be in a show! I immediately said YES and I began packing and shipping.
**I found that shipping a 25lb box, Fedex was the cheapest and fastest (aside for the unplanned snow storm in the heartland of the country) and off it went.

I thought I was going to be part of a group of 12 artists or so. HAHA the next day I found out I was one of 5 and the youngest at that too! I was thrilled! The show is called Marc Digeros and Other Boys That Get Low *Meaning guys that use low fire earthenware or terracotta.

Red Star Studios is located in Kansas City MO and I consider that city (and may others too within the ceramics community) to be the Mecca for ceramics in this country thanks to the Kansas City Art Institute. Here are a few photos from the show taken by the gallery director cause I'm not able to make it out there for it.

*As you walk in the front door this is what you see.

Joe Pintz I have looked up to Joe since I saw his work in college.

Marty Fielding I came across Marty's work recently and just fell in love! There is a square bowl in his etsy shop that I have had my eye on for quite some time now!

Marc Digeros I really enjoy Marc's color combination on his pots, and his forms are to die for!

Brian Jones I love the color blocking Brian uses in his work, and the bright colors he uses too!

And Last but not least Arthur Halvorsen ME!

So please check this show out if you just so happen to be in the area, I would love to know your thoughts about the show. The show runs now through March 27.
