|Early Morning on Porter Street|
It's been a way busy week here at the studio. We thought we'd share a little of the behind the scenes film-making that took place at Blue Horse Arts and Jay Foster Music Studios in the early morning hours of Friday. ESPN producer Jalaine Edwards contacted us to ask if it would be possible to use the space as a set for the Peyton Manning Homecoming teaser!
|The Studio Before|
And of course we said that would be possible:)!
The teaser will be airing tomorrow on the Sunday NFL Countdown at 10AM and then again at 11:55 ish in case you are sleeping in:)! The teaser concept is staged as Peyton Manning's Art Gallery. So for the short time being "Field Projects" is Football Field Projects:)!
DON'T MISS IT!!

Looking Forward to Jalaine's Magic of Editing in the Morning!

Elizabeth MacDonald Artist's Statement
"With clay, I try to create the effects of intimacy and vastness through the use of fragmentation. Small surface elements draw the viewer into a larger context where hundreds of parts interact to form a whole.
Marks of color, texture and layers of powdered ceramic stain are revealed as finished surfaces after the firing. As I choose powders of one imagined hue to mingle with another, I know that every bit of pigment, though hidden in the powdered mixture, will affect the whole. Results of this initial process become the chaos of fragments from which I work. Each element becomes a discovery."
Aside from being a prolific artist in ceramic sculpture and painting, Elizabeth has been instrumental in organizing the "Rivers Alive" exhibition and lecture series hosted by the Washington Art Association. This exhibition and event project has been a collaboration with the Rivers Alliance and the Steep Rock Preserve. Please visit the WAA page to see more information on this project, future lectures,and the closing reception date.
Check out this video for a glimpse into this artist's process.
