Anne Farley Gaines Ceramic Demonstration (Free)

June 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Artists for Climate Awareness and the Ivy Tech Center for Lifelong Learning are excited to invite Chicago artist, Anne Farley Gaines, into the Ivy Tech Ceramics Studio this summer for a free one-day demonstration in which Anne will produce a lively ceramic work based on one of her watercolors of nature!

Anne Farley Gaines uses the emotional language of art with thematic environmental education. Her subjects focus on her passions: disappearing coastlines of the Great Lakes, decaying trees uprooted by rising waters from glacier melt, animal species being pushed by climate change to unprecedented areas, forest fires, violent storms, and their aftermath. Recently, on a trip through the mid-south Into Florida, Anne journaled her observations of climate change in the regions. Her ceramic pieces will be wall plaques of plants in nature, and will be based on the watercolors she created.

This demonstration will accompany a display of Anne’s work on campus and at The Waldron Arts Center, which will be available for viewing throughout June and July.
