Visting Artists: Rimas VisGirda and Mic Stowell
We always look forward to the Fall visiting artist at ASP. During this special time, our artists come and make work, share in our Thanksgiving meal, and stay on for Winter Open House.
After repeated requests from past mentees, Rimas and Mic drove out from Ilinois and Minnesota, respectively. Rimas, retired from Illinois Wesleyan, has taught widely throughout the western and mid-western United States. He is known for his complex surface techniques, employing engobes, decals and lusters. He is also known, to a few, as Captain Ceramics. Mic Stowell, who lives in south Minneapolis, recently retired from twenty-six years of full-time teaching. His work has gone through multiple iterations from slip cast geometric teapots to tightly painted plates and organic forms. He is the 2017 McKnight Fellowship recipient.
Please see the visiting artist section of this website for more on Mic and Rimas and join us in a festive celebration of their time here at our annual Winter Open House this Saturday, Dec. 2, from 4-8.
