Featured Artist James Reid of Twice Fired Pottery

James Reid.2015-06-20.smNorthfield native James Reid took a ceramics course and fell in love. He’s been making wheel-thrown functional pottery since that course in 2012. He says, “Functional beauty to daily life. This is the essence I instill in each form. As an artist, I try to remain down to earth to obtain a stronger connection with the concept of the pottery I make. This connection and the ability to bring it to life is crucial to keep me and my pots centered.”

Featured Artists Mary Schaubschlager and Tyler Green of Hi Ho Stamps

Tyler & Mary Hi Ho Stamps 2015-08-22.smMary and Tyler are two Minneapolis artists with a deep love of printmaking. Since meeting at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis where Tyler is an instructor, they have collaborated in relief printmaking, screen printing, printing lithographs, and making hand-drawn, hand-carved stamps (and printing goods with them). Their work always shows their humor, creativity, and “love of fishing.” Mary is teaching a printing class at the NAG on 9/25, which “you should sign up for if you want to laugh really hard and get really inky.”
