During the workshop they will divide their time between throwing, trimming and decorating. Sam will use stoneware and porcelain to demonstrate his loose throwing methods, pushing forms to the point of collapse in order to highlight an asymmetry not often found in utilitarian wheel-thrown pots. Sam will also demonstrate how he decorates using clay applied to the surface of the pots, carving into and building sculptural surfaces. He will also demonstrate an after glazing method of drawing with underglaze onto the surface of post-fired pieces.

Jenny throws with porcelain, creating forms that belong together through surface conversations. Some of these interactions are humorous while others focus on pattern and line. She likes to think that pottery has secret conversations when put away in cupboards. Her surface demonstrations will address techniques such as sgraffito, after glaze drawings and decals created from ink drawings. Both artists will talk about their influences, studio practices as well as the evolution of their home business, Dowd House Studios.

New Art Center

The Teton Arts Council is developing a plan for land improvement around the existing Arts Center on Rodeo Drive, Driggs. The land is currently unimproved area but could be so much more. The view of the Grand Teton is tremendous! Our goal for the land improvement will include an outdoor art park with space to hold gatherings, outdoor workshops, and small events. We would love to hear from our Members! Look for invitations to come out this summer and tell us what you think.

Our Sponsors

Many of the programs offered by The Teton Arts Council would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.  We greatly appreciate your support and participation.

We are equally grateful for the countless members of our community that have stepped up to the plate to volunteer time, talent, and sometimes a little money of their own.

 

 

Our Mission

The mission of the Teton Arts Council is to develop, nurture, and celebrate our cultural life through education, performances, exhibitions, and community opportunities.

In 2007, we started the volunteer Resident Artists Program to plan, organize and execute the art programming. These volunteers are well-respected artists who give back to the Artist Community by ensuring that the arts classes and workshops continue to offer compelling and relevant education opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering as a Resident Artist, please contact the Board Chair by sending email to info@tetonartscouncil.com
