Friday, July 12th, the Market Street Art Spot opened a new show featuring, “FireWorks”, the fabulous Raku pottery of Louisville artist, Judith Singer. Included in the exhibit are vessels of assorted shapes and sizes, both wheel-thrown and hand-built and tiles, all in a variety of finishes. Looking for an exquisitely crafted, unique gift? You will find it in this exhibit! Providing musical entertainment for the evening were Tom Freeland, Connor Freeland and Amy Nezbeth. “Fire Works” will be on display until August 3rd. Sincere thanks to all who came out to support the opening with special gratitude to our sponsor, Minerva Area Federal Credit Union.
“In my father’s wood-working shop, I learned of the personal joy in creating wonderful things through practice, process, focus and craftsmanship. Those principles were reinforced and honed with a BFA in Crafts Design at Bowling Green State University, Ohio, and continuing post-graduate experiences in fine crafts design.
…my work explores the use of line, pattern, texture and color to create surface interest. I am always looking for found-objects for inspiration and incorporation, or to use as creative tools. It is great fun to reveal to others what object has inspired an expressive form, or made a tactile surface mark.
Teaching necessitates continual learning. I enjoy opportunities to work in shared studio spaces, classes and workshops in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.”
Singer’s work has been shown at the Canton Museum of Art, The Massillon Museum, The Little Art Gallery and the Warren and Salem branches of the Butler Museum of American Art.
