From Nancy:

FYI, figurative clay artist Kathy Venter is giving an a artist talk at Pottery NW on March 8th. Free.

Her work will be on exhibit at BAM.

I was curious about the influences Kathy Venter cited, one is Emily Kame Kngwarreye (pronounced Ung-warh-ay), this is a pretty good article. She started painting at 80!

Another influence is the tanagra terracottas.

Also at the same time at BAM will show the work of an interesting wood sculptor, Dan Webb, graduate of Cornish.
