Faces Of Our Community
Shelly Goodmanson in the Studio, Headshot, Provided by Shelly Goodmanson
Faces of Our Community will be two-fold; a creation of clay ‘self-portraits’ followed by an art gallery style experience for our rural community. The community participants, needing no experience, will be invited and encouraged to attend clay self-portrait sessions where all materials and instruction will be provided. The project will conclude in a public gallery type exhibition of self-portraits created entirely by the public for the public, a representation of our community of farmers, teachers, professionals, and children.
“Giddy excitement describes how I felt when I was notified about being a recipient of a THRIVE! Grant! I look forward to providing ceramic materials and an artistic opportunity in a small farming community.” - Shelly Goodmanson
