Clara Hatton Gallery, Visual Arts
WORKSHOP: Monday, February 28th to Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022 in the Hatton Gallery, G101
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.
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.
