SCA presents exclusive studio tour with artist Jason Quigno
Take a creative field trip to meet nationally acclaimed sculptor Jason Quigno at his Anishinaabe Studio in Grand Rapids. The outing will take place 9:30-11:20 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30. The Saugatuck Center for the Arts is coordinating the tour, which costs $15 and includes coffee. Register at sc4a.org or 269-857-2399.
Quigno will give guests a private tour of his work space and talks about Native art traditions, his creative inspiration and his process for creating three-dimensional works. He also will demonstrate his carving process.
“We are thrilled to present this very special opportunity as part of the programming surrounding our ‘Tomorrow’s Stories’ exhibition featuring contemporary Native American art,” said Whitney Valentine, SCA exhibition and education manager. “Jason’s artistry is unrivaled and his process is fascinating. Experiencing an artist work with thousands of pounds of stone is remarkable.”
Guests should dress for time in a working studio (including comfortable shoes). Tour participants should meet at Quigno’s Anishinaabe Studio at 1111 Godfrey, Grand Rapids, in the factory building. A large parking lot in front of the studio accommodates guests.
