A few times a year Bier Gallery transforms into a working studio with demonstrations by several of the artists that the gallery represents. Tami and
Tyler Bier as well as Anna Farrell area constant at these events. Tami demonstrates clay sculpture while Tyler and Anna demonstrate making their ceramic guitars, functional pottery, or Tyler’s grandfather’s tradition, clay piggy banks. Of course Ray is always as busy as can be tending to the customers in the shop.
Meredith Krell’s meticulous carving and painting techniques reveal a multi-layered printmaking process. Cal Kemppainen’s attention to detail and color will captivate and inspire, as well as Emily Beynon’s watercolors whose techniques add an interesting dimension to the events. Let’s not forget Rex Benson’s delightful and often wacky demonstrations of his whimsical clay sculptures. An assortment of other artists rotate yearly at these events and demonstrate their expertise in their given fields.
Each demonstration day is unique and there are always surprises when old friends and families meet and find common interests with the artists. The loose format embellished by refreshments, (not to forget Tami’s famous chocolate chip cookies) lends itself to a relaxing day to watch artists creating their work and a wide selection of pieces to purchase.
We welcome all of you for the 2020 Season! Visit our studio and discover working artists such as Tami Bier creating in clay. Our Gallery and Studio are open everyday from 10am-6pm during the summer season.
