Visiting Artist: Nicole Seisler
The Ash Street Project is pleased to welcome L.A. based artist Nicole Seisler for the first three weeks of June. Nicole is an interdisciplinary artist who creates sculpture, installation, and public art that investigate themes of time, ephemerality, and the overlapping roles of artist/viewer/participant/collaborator.
Seisler received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She has exhibited at venues including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; Elmhurst Art Museum, Illinois; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Fine Arts, Tallahassee; Armory Arts Center, West Palm Beach; North Gallery at the University of Washington, Seattle; Customs House, Sydney; Alto Galleria, Brussels; and Flash Atoyle in Izmir, Turkey. Reviews of Seisler’s work have been published in The New York Times, Hyperallergic, Ceramics Monthly, the Boston Globe, and the Boston Herald.
During her time at ASP, Nicole will be engaged in a project in our gallery space that will be shared with the public upon completion (late June). Please check our FB/instagram pages for details closer to this time. More on Nicole here.
VISITING ARTIST: JOE KRAFT
The Ash Street Project is pleased to host our Fall ‘18 visiting artist, Joe Kraft. Joe Kraft is a working artist in Chicago, IL. He received his BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2012. Upon graduation he received a Windgate Fellowship Grant and spent time traveling the Southwest to experience and research Land Art. Growing up in Illinois he wound up in Chicago soon after. He has been an artist in residence at Lillstreet Art Center, the AIR Ceramic Center in Vallauris, France and Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark. While his primary medium is clay, Joe’s practice is rooted in drawing, which drives all other parts of his artistic work.
In keeping with tradition, Joe will be working with us through early December, at which time his work will be featured in our annual Winter Open House (December 1st, from 4-8pm). Please come join us at this event to meet Joe and see his beautiful work. For more on Joe Kraft, please visit his website here.
