Young Artist Speaker Series: Ellie Richards

November 18, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Young Artist Speaker Series | Ellie Richards | Wed, November 18, 2020 | 6:30 – 7:30 pm | Live on Zoom

The Center for Art in Wood is proud to present the Young Artist Speaker Series. Each semester a young artist is asked to share their work and speak about the transition from academia to becoming an independent artist. The fourth installment in the series will feature artist Ellie Richards taking place virtually on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. Richards will discuss her experiences developing her career, extensive travels, and the connections and relationships that are created during a residency.

Ellie Richards looks to the tradition of both woodworking and the readymade to create eclectic assemblage, installation, and objects exploring intersections of labor and leisure. She has traveled extensively to investigate the role play and improvisation have on the artistic process and will be a 3 year Resident Artist at Penland School of Crafts 2020-2023.

This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood is a nonprofit arts organization. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
