If you’ve been following our blog, checked out our new website or looked for us on Facebook, you already know that we are gearing up for our next big event: ArtHouse Revealed! Our annual fundraiser promises to be a fun filled evening of music, food and great art. If you haven’t been before, it’s a wonderful opportunity to come and check out our studio space as well as bid on beautiful works from some of Cleveland’s most talented artists! Leading up to the event, we’ll be featuring a sneak peak at some of these artists to whet that donating appetite. Curious?
We wanted to start by introducing well known local ceramic artist and ArtHouse instructor: Gina Desantis. Gina earned her BA in 2002 from Cleveland State and graduated with an MFA from Kent State in 2006. She works primarily in white stoneware clay to make beautiful, functional wares both on the wheel and using handbuilding techniques. Through the use of sustainable materials and employment of organic imagery, Gina articulates her connection with the earth and her environment with gorgeous results.
