Jul 2, 2013Freeway Studies BlogBen Jackel works mainly with clay in what would seem to be a mold process, but surprisingly is done mostly by hand and lathe. The sculptures Jackel creates are often tributes to family members passed, even though you would never think of that by just looking at them; including pieces like the fire hydrants that [...]Jul 2, 2013Freeway Studies BlogJudy Stabile is one of the few female artists to come out of the Light and Space Movement. Her paintings and sculptures incorporate glass, acrylic and spray paint, and sometimes metallic paints that play with the light in the room. The visual effects are stunning as the two-dimensional surface takes on the life and breath [...]Jul 2, 2013Freeway Studies BlogOtis faculty member, Kiki Sammarcelli, loves Broadway theater and was even part of the Woman’s Building community back in the day.

All of David’s surfing buddies were calling because of the large swell rolling through,[...]Jun 11, 2013Freeway Studies BlogAgain, making the rounds with Carolyn Peter, we visited with artist Rebecca Tull who presented her recent photographic and video work. She gave us a brief introduction to her background having focused her undergraduate studies on women in spirituality, spent nearly three years living in a monastery and her interest in using her mind and[...]Jun 11, 2013Freeway Studies BlogElana Mann introduced us to the ritualized performance work of Amanda Yates. I visited the studio with Carolyn Peter.
