Wine is made from grapes. Grapes are a plant. So wine is basically a salad. So here’s a still life of a salad by Naomi Haralson.

Okay, maybe not. But Naomi’s work is impressive nonetheless. Her wine compositions inspire us to treat ourselves.

“Wine Trio” is 450USD while “A Walk in the Garden” is marked at 550. Both pieces pictures are oil on canvas.

A reception for his work will be held on September 1st from 5-7pm. Stop by during the reception to get your fill of food, wine, and art! ... See MoreSee Less

So... I haven't posted in forever because a lot has been going on. I've been to two weddings (thank you Shawn, Bradley, Henry, and Virginia) and two firings. So, a story. Sometime in May I fired my catenary. The firing kind of bothered me because we burned 8 face cords of wood and i couldn't get the kiln past cone 8. Very shortly thereafter I went north to fire Jeff Cline's kiln which was a rather magical experience. An awesome crew and as far as I could tell a very well executed firing, food included. ( Let's disregard for a moment Jeff's report that he was not that happy with the results. "sucks" for him means something shy of perfect.)
So during the course of that whole bit I realized that we had burned something like 12 face cords of wood to fire Jeff's , what?, 250 cubic foot kiln? So I drove back south and promptly destroyed my nobo. And now I'm building a new kiln. I have spent much of the last week pouring foundations for it and tonight I began laying brick. Quite a joy to be doing this again after a decade. This new kiln will be a little thumper of an anagama, 11 feet long but 9 feet wide. Shaped like a turnip or the legendary Manglewurzle. I will post pictures as construction gets going. Anyone who wants to come play should do so soon. It has begun...

Hope to see you the Art Connect Finale Exhibition at the Art Center of Battle Creek.

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 5th—5:00-7:00 PM.
Where: Art Center of Battle Creek—265 E Emmitt St. Battle Creek
Viewing Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10 PM to 5 PM and Saturday, 11 AM to 3 PM. Exhibit Closes: Saturday, January 28th

The Art Center of Battle Creek will host the culminating event of the recent Art Connect Project. Seven participating artists represent a wide spectrum of art-making practices and mediums and include the work of Craig Bishop, Sabine LeDieu, Maureen Reed, Nobel Schuler, Bobbie Van Eck, Jerome Washington, Pete Williams. Art Center Executive Director, Linda Holderbau, hails the display as “a powerfully expressive presentation and a sensational launch of the 2017 exhibition schedule”.

The Art Connect Project’s aim has been to embrace and enhance the relationship between art and recreation, engage and connect Calhoun County residents and artists and promote the arts to children, teens, adults and families. In addition to free classes and displays the Art Connect Project provided studio work space at Schuler Arts for several Albion visual artists for professional and creative development. The project was funded through the Battle Creek Community Foundation and was a collaboration of the City of Albion Recreation Department, Schuler Arts Creativity Retreat Center and the Art Center of Battle Creek.

ANNE'S LAST POTTERY SALE:

Saturday, August 6th: 9:00am - 6:00pm
Sunday, August 7th: 9:00am - 6:00pm

Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of moving to Bloomington because I am starting my MFA program in the Fall at Indiana University. This weekend will be my final sale at Albion Anagama. I am hoping to sell as much as I can to cut down on how much inventory I have to move and to make a little cash to help with the moving costs.

Hope to see you at the shop,
Anne
