Artist Talk with Colby Charpentier, Artist in Residence

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 • 12 PM (PST) • Virtual

Join us for a virtual artist talk with Artist in Residence Colby Charpentier. Charpentier is a process-oriented sculptor dedicated to the exploration of ceramic materials. His artistic process, grounded in a study of historical and contemporary materials production, deconstructs and reinterprets traditional vessel forms with visually arresting studies of texture, form, and color. His works are a tenuous balance of chaos and order, and a meditation on the tension between the organic and the ethereal.
