Free with MFA admission.
This month: Kerrick Johnson and Jon Goldberg @ 3pm
Color blind, Kerrick Johnson has emphasized line and form and vibrant hues, high in contrast, in his work, so he can see them. He is inspired by the colors and organic forms he finds in nature and also pursues photography and produces metal pieces. He holds a BFA in glass art, with a minor in art history, from the Appalachian Center for Craft, Tennessee Technological University. He built his own studio and hot shop from the ground up in Chattanooga.
Jon Goldberg finds inspiration in the semi-random compositions seen in nature. Ripples on a lake, grain in a piece of wood, striations in marble and tangled vines are all inspirations both in pattern and color.
December 14 @3pm: Jacob Stout and Mariel Bass
