Friday Jan 11: Mudflat AIRs at Red Lodge, MT

In September 2018, six previous Mudflat artists in residence participated in an “Artists Invite Artists” month-long residency at Red Lodge Clay Center in Red Lodge, Montana. They will discuss the workspace there and show images of work in progress. An exhibition at Mudflat, January 17 through February 3, will feature work that was created during this residency by all 6 artists.


Friday Mar 15: Visiting Artist Meghan Sullivan

Prior to her one day visiting artist workshop at Mudflat, Meghan will show and discuss the historic references that she uses in her work and how her international traveling has influenced her work. Meghan was Mudflat’s Artist in Residence, 2001-2002.



Friday May 24: Cathy Lu

Cathy will give a talk, “Real Imitations”, about the influences on her work. She engages with traditional Chinese art imagery and presentations as a way to talk about Chinese American identity and immigrant culture. She is interested in flattening the different value associations seen in prized traditional Chinese ceramics in museum collections, with the current mass produced trinkets made in China and everyday objects used in Chinese American communities.  Cathy was Mudflat’s Artist in Residence, 2007-2008.


Friday June 7: Dan Molyneux

Dan will show images of his sculptural work that focus on how he relates to form, highlighting examples of perceiving form in novel, cross-disciplinary ways. He will explain his own strategy to generating a series of pots or sculptures, always looking for clues where the work can evolve. Sharing tips on construction, he will also introduce his approach to surface and glazing, stressing surfaces that highlight the intention of the work. Dan was Mudflat’s Artist in Residence, 2012-2013.
