The Scott Artist Series, The Department of Art and Art History in collaboration with the Hatton Gallery presents a students workshop led by Rowland Ricketts from February 28th to March 2nd, 2022.
Rowland Ricketts is a contemporary fiber artist whose practice is both broad and expansive and also incredibly specific. His artwork takes many forms – from installation art to objects of daily use for the home – but many of the ideas are rooted in traditional indigo dye techniques that Ricketts learned while an apprentice in Japan.
During his three-day visit, Ricketts will be teaching a hands-on workshop, giving a public lecture, and visiting classrooms for conversations with undergraduate and graduate students. The workshop, based on block print will be held in the Clara Hatton Gallery, and the connected exhibition will be on display from March 21 to April 1, 2022.
The hands-on workshop will be a great opportunity to see an artist making work on-site and in the space of a gallery – a space usually for displaying finished artwork. An opportunity to talk about the richness of Ricketts’ practice and also the potential of art and galleries to house a range of events pertinent to the teaching goals of the visual and liberal arts.
