Artists’ Talk: Toru Sugita & Kathy Kearns
January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Please join us for a two part Artists’ Talk with Toru Sugita and Kathy Kearns, Saturday, January 20th starting at 2 pm at 770 West Grand Ave in Oakland.
The talk will start at 2 pm with Toru Sugita discussing his work in our current featured solo show, ACROSS, followed by comments from Kathy Kearns regarding her wood-fired ceramic work featured in Strangely Familiar, showing in our Small Space. Both artists present pieces informed by a cultural heritage that, though far away, is clearly present in the work on view. In ACROSS Sugita explores his connection to both his boyhood home in Japan and the Bay Area locations of his life in California, while Kathy Kearns’ recent ceramic works draw on myths and practices from her Greek heritage.
Learn about the process, themes and ideas of these two artists and bring your questions! Free and open to the public, all are welcome with free street parking nearby.
