(PRINCETON, NJ) -- The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) Executive Director and nationally-acclaimed ceramic artist Adam Welch will be In Conversation with Timothy M. Andrews, art collector and major supporter of the Arts Council’s Artist-in-Residence program on Tuesday, October 20 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm.
This curated series of discussions is designed to celebrate and connect those who make art and those who love art. Breaking down the barriers between artist and art-appreciator, In Conversation delves into inspiration, studio practice, and artistic aspirations. Free registration is available on artscouncilofprinceton.org
“My work is about bricks and how their making is a reflection on labor and art. The forming, design, documentation and intervention, explores history and material culture. Knowing Timothy Andrews our In Conversation will be fun and a totally unique experience,” explains Welch. “When have you spent an hour looking and listening to people talk about bricks…and the meaning of life?”
A nationally-acclaimed ceramic artist, Welch has participated in thirty-seven solo or group exhibitions in the United States over the past ten years, including at the Arts Council of Princeton, MoMA PS1 and White Columns in NYC, and AIR Gallery in Brooklyn, with solo exhibitions at the Hunterdon Art Museum, Kean University, Princeton Day School, and Northwestern College, and several curated, group, and invitational exhibitions throughout the United States.
