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.
