Behind The Scenes at Terri Kern Studios for Final Friday

Thought I would share a few photos from the February Final Friday at the Pendleton Arts Center. It was a great night and we had quite the crowd come by the studio.  I managed to get a few photos snapped, check them out:

These two twenty-somethings spent a little time getting creative
and learning to use the clay tools.


 Here they are posing for a quick photo with their finished books.

Up Close: These are the books they made.



t.kern.bird.sculptureI’m so excited.  This was a piece I made in early January. I have been pondering
the best way to finish it and have  just started to paint it with underglazes.  The bird is
a separate piece that is held in place atop that stack of carved books with a wooden post.
It’s the largest piece I have made in this series so far and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s finished.

 This is a cool shot. It gives you a different perspective on the bird.  I had fun
teaching these two teens how to make clay books in the studio.
Yes. That is a christmas tree in the background.

A little Peek Behind The Scenes at Terri Kern Studios

People are often curious about the process that goes into creating one of my pieces so I thought I’d give you all a little “peek” into life at the studio. We put together a fun little video montage of me working on a piece in my latest series.  I’m working on a more indepth post on this, but thought you’d like to see this too.

Exciting News: Cincinnati Arts Fellowship Grant

Some of you may have already heard, but I wanted to write about  it here on the blog as well. I am excited to share that I was one of seven artists selected by the city to receive a $6,000 grant from the Cincinnati Arts Ambassador Fellowship!

As part of the grant I will be working even more to connect with Cincinnati residents and raise awareness of our ever-growing arts community. Part of this includes opening up Terri Kern Studios during Final Fridays at the Pendleton Art Center (5th floor). I’ll also be sharing more updates about my work, where you can find me, arts events around town and more on the Terri Kern Studios Facebook Page.  I will also be exhibiting my work in several exhibitions and at galleries around town such as The Carnegie in Covington and Humler and Nolan downtown.

I believe that art plays a vital role in our community. For me, it has several underlying purposes: to provoke thoughtful reconsideration of previously held opinions and beliefs; to produce a connection between the artist and the viewer; to visually express concepts that can be difficult to discuss. In the past, I have dealt with a wide variety of subjects including
Alzheimer’s disease, marriage, loss, and familial relationships. Currently, the work I am making focuses on another universal concept that many people struggle with: creating balance in one’s life.

You can read more about the Cincinnati Arts Fellowship Grant and about the other awardees in this article in Soapbox Cincinnati or in CityBeat Cincinnati.

Final Friday and Second Look Saturday at The Pendleton

Hi everyone. If you weren’t able to come out last weekend for the Annual Studio Collection Sale, I’ll be participating in the upcoming Final Friday and Second Look Saturday events at The Pendleton.  Come out for an evening of open studios at The Pendleton Arts Center on Nov. 30 and peruse the studio spaces of Pendleton based artists and visit with me in my studio – # 511.

That night you can also enjoy the Merry Miniatures holiday exhibition down on the first floor.

If you can’t make it Friday, stop by Saturday, Dec. 1  between 11am and 3pm for The Pendleton’s annual Holiday Open House. Not only will my studio be open, but I’ll be doing some demos on the wheel and some hand-on carving demos where I’ll be sharing some of my carving techniques and you can try your hand at it too!

Hyde Park Art Show October 2

A set of bunny shakers, getting ready to be fired in the kiln.

The Hyde Park Art Show returns Sunday, October 2 and I hope you will all stop by and see me at booth 10. The Show is one of the largest (if not the largest) one-day art shows Cincinnati and one that I always enjoy being a part of. There will be around 200 exhibitors representing various mediums – painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, crafts, etc.

If you are interested in coming out to see me, the show takes place at Hyde Park Square (Edwards Road and Erie Avenue) and is free to the public.

I’ve been working in the studio quite a bit and look forward to sharing some of my new works with you!
