Fall Workshop with Donna Zagotta – Finding your Way

Mark Mehaffey introduced me to Donna Zagotta about three years ago.  We have enjoyed representing this talented painter at C2C Gallery.  She and I talked about her teaching a workshop in Grand Haven this Fall.  You can learn more about this opportunity by clicking on this image:

As a clay artist, we constantly ask ourselves, what type of clay work do we want to create.  It’s a constant wrestle between our ears and our hands.  Do I want to make sculptural or functional?  One of our artists, Marion Angelica, has found a path where she takes her textural interest in sculpture and transferred it successfully to hand-built porcelain functional pots.  But I digress.

Cheers, I hope you do something creative today!  C2 .
