The latest Florida CraftArt exhibition “Role Models” emphasizes the important relationships between mentor and artist in the ceramics community. One of the chosen artists, Brian Ransom, crafts pieces that serve, not only as works of beauty, but as playable musical instruments. Brian, an Eckerd College Professor of Visual Arts, demonstrates his clay and ceramic instruments at Florida Craft Art on Sunday, February 7 from 3:00-4:30 pm. In the spirit of the exhibit, Brian will be accompanied by his assistant Matt Flynn–a musician who graduated from Eckerd College in 2014. The event is complimentary, however, a suggested donation for the artists is encouraged.
