Eye On Art  |  05/23/2019 9:00 am

Gathered Glassblowing Studio, Toledo’s premier studio gallery, is proud to announce a closing reception for Kelsey Scharf, on June 13th, 2019 from 6-8:30pm. As part of Gathered’s Featured Artist Series, Scharf’s new paintings, photographs and prints reflect on the intimacy and humanity present in mundane and urban spaces typically associated with the declining middle class in America’s Midwest. Scharf will be discussing her process and motivations with Gathered Gallery Coordinator Ian Welch, as well as taking questions from the public. Additionally, Scharf will be conducting a demonstration of egg tempera painting methods including how to mix pigments, application and examples of her work.

Gathered’s gallery and upstairs studios will be open with demonstrations and tours of The Black Iron Press letterpress studio and Pegboard Press printmaking studio. This event is free and open to the public.
