For all you Takashi Nakazato fans… Takashi will arrive in Denver on July 16th, and will probably come to the Arvada Center late that day. He will be working in the ceramics studio for a week, starting on July 17th. We will not be offering a workshop from Takashi this year, BUT he is always open to having people come to the studio to watch him work. (And if you have not seen the man work his magic, it truly is a must see!)
Arvada Center Presents Figurative Sculptor Esther Shimazu, July 20
Esther Shimazu, a figurative sculptor from Hawaii, will present a lecture and visual presentation on her work at the Arvada Center on Tuesday, July 20, at 7:00 p.m. in studio 24B. There is no charge and the public is welcome.
For information on the artist:
â€œMost of the imagery is of bald, nude chunky Asian women, unconcerned about clothing and hairdo, comfortable in their own skins. There is the occasional male figure or companion animal. All invite the viewer to play, but underneath, there’s a hint that they might bite.â€ – John Natsoulas, Center for the Arts
