Going back to Nevada…

Going back to Nevada... | the dirt | Jenni Ward ceramic sculptureIn order to squeeze in just one more art event before I flee the country, this past weekend we headed back out to the Buffalo Creek Art Center in Gardnerville Nevada for an end of summer bbq art show. I brought my three Lichen Trees with me and a few pieces from the Bone Series | Medusas that I had made while I was an artist in residence there this past June. It was so nice to be back, meet some of the other artists and enjoy the beauty of the eastern sierras again.

The event had nearly 100 visitors come to the ranch and meet the artists and their work. It was great to talk about my time there and the process of making my work with everyone. I can’t say enough about the owners Steve & Lana and the caretakers Bill & Mel, they welcomed me with open arms from day one and I’m so grateful for the opportunity I had in working there this summer.
