First Friday Studio Night: Clay Carving Inspired by Jason Quigno
Fri, Nov 2, 2018
Free with gallery admission; UICA Members: Free
Between 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Every first Friday of the month.
Browse the works on view as part of Coming Home, then head to The Studio between 6:00 - 9:00 pm to create a clay carving inspired by Jason Quigno’s stonework to take home.
Studio activities are led by one of our rotating hosts, are family friendly, and are designed for all ages.
As part of Coming Home, Quigno, a stone artist, exhibits work telling Anishinaabe stories, history, and legends. Quigno represents legends in non-objective ways with 5,000 pound granite boulders carved with simple flowing lines and various textures including highly polished areas, rough sawn cuts, honed surfaces, and the natural raw crust that took millions of years to form.
Quigno is represented by LaFontsee Galleries in Grand Rapids, MI and has exhibited nationally. Quigno’s works are part of a number of collections including the Grand Rapids Public Museum, Grand Valley State University, Okaya City Hall in Nagano Okaya Prefecture, Japan and Central Michigan University.
