Visiting Artist: Cathy Bloom
There is alot going on at Ash Street these days! We've been reconfiguring the work spaces to make room for a FULL house this fall. Before September is over, we will have two visiting artists, who both happen to be from Portland, Maine, joining the mix.
First to arrive with be Cathy Bloom.
Cathy received her BFA in sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design in 1979, where she concentrated primarily on metal fabrication. After graduating, she worked as a graphic artist in New York city, while continuing to make sculpture and 3-D artists' books using wood, paper, plexiglass and paint.
She moved to Portland, Maine in 1990, and explored just about every medium but clay, until 2007 when an opportunity arose to study with ceramic artist Carolyn Judson. Since then she has thoroughly enjoyed getting her hands into the clay, and is intrigued by the unpredictable nature of glazes.
Cathy will work with us for three weeks. She will be one of eleven artists participating in our October exhibit " Ash Street: The First Year ". More on that event soon!
