FIRST FRIDAY: Lisa Wood & Antoinette Walker
July 4 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm / artist talk 6:00 pm
Lisa Wood creates function stoneware forms that radiate earthy elegance. Her lifestyle inspires ideas for ash glazes and wood fired pots reminiscent of fish, boats and woodwork, bold brushstrokes, mossy and oceanic glazes. Lisa Wood has studied pottery with internationally-recognized artists Jeff Oestrich, Malcom Davis, Mary Barringer and Linda Christiansen and Ron Meyer, among others.
Antoinette Walker’s encaustic artwork is created with collaged bits of photos, fabric, Korean newspapers and layers of encaustic, pigmented wax. Antoinette is a fisher and painter who has lived on Kodiak and fished around Alaska for many years. Her artwork is primarily concerned with fishing and documenting the culture, historical context and themes such as boats, buildings and people who fish from Kodiak to Bristol Bay and Homer.
