Rings, Rings, and Rings of “Fine Silver” with Kim Bakken-Parr

Rings.jpg

Using Precious Metal Clay (“PMC,” clay composed of silver particles, water and an organic binder) students will be able to create the ring of their dreams. Students initially start working with polymer clay to become familiar with tools textures, and techniques. The clay is rolled, shaped and molded to get the perfect ring. Using PMC, students will form their ring on a mandrel. For additional enhancement, a man-made stone (CZ) can be incorporated into the pieces. There is no hammering sawing or soldering. The final rings are all 99.9% silver and called “fine silver”. Everything is supplied by the instructor for this class. Just bring a lunch and creativity!

Fee: AOTL Members - $65, Non-Members - $80, Materials - $55

Facio Tribute.jpg

These members of the talented Miltich family from Grand Rapids, MN, will pay tribute their musician friend, Victor Facio, who passed away in 2016 in the night before he was to join Anthony and Jim on stage at the Evansville Art Center.

Jim is a self-taught musician with varied experience. His quick wit and uncanny ability to size up any situation could have led to a career as a stand-up comic. He performed with Victor many times. Jim is a multi-talented actor and director as well as guitar, harmonica and voice performer.

Anthony has been performing in the upper Midwest for more than 30 years. He is in the singer/songwriter tradition with an evocative, powerful voice and multifaceted guitar playing. He has appeared on Minnesota Public Radio several times. He is a favorite performer at the Evansville Art Center.

Doors open at 6:30 pm. This is a free concert. Donations accepted. Bring a treat toshare if you can. Beverages provided.
