WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — WilliNet-TV will present "Conversations in the Studio," a show about local artists, daily on Channel 17 throughout November and December, and at willinet.org
Visit the studios of local artists Sean Riley, Ray Bub and Lisa Nilsson as they demonstrate and discuss their work with artist Tracy Baker-White. Conversations in the Studio is produced by videographer Julia Morgan-Leamon. The series is a field trip into the creative process.
Riley is a painter turned quilt-maker who is currently working on a series of pieces made from his own father's clothing. Bub creates abstract sculptural teapots in his studio, Oak Bluffs Cottage Pottery. Nilsson is a trained illustrator who has turned to the medieval art of quilling — a process that involves curling tiny paper strips and gluing them down. In the interviews, each of these artists talks about their materials, processes and inspirations.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Cultural Council of Northern Berkshire, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
