More about our Guest Artists:
Boise artist Lynn Fraley’s equine sculptures exude vivid personalities. Her deep respect for anatomy and biomechanics is evident in each piece. In recent years she has consistently garnered top honors at the annual American Academy of Equine Art Fall Juried Exhibit; the Sam Savitt Award for best depiction of the Horse in Movement in 2017, the Marilyn Newmark Memorial Award for sculpture in 2016 and the Leonard J Meiselman medal for sculpture in 2011. Limited editions are available in bronze, resin or ceramic. For more information, see lynnafraley.com or email her at email@example.com.
Katharina Roth was born and raised in Switzerland, where she studied art history at the university of Basel. In 1992, she moved to the United States. In the U.S. she learned jewelry making and metal smithing and worked for several years in that field before receiving a BFA from Northern Arizona University with a focus on ceramics, sculpture and printmaking. Then, in the fall of 2016, she spent six weeks in a residency program in Jingdezhen, China’s porcelain capitol for over 2000 years, learning techniques unique to Chinese ceramics. This experience changed the way she worked, moving her from using white unglazed porcelain to applying many layers of slips, oxides, glazes, decals, and luster. Katharina enjoys working out of her studios in Sedona, Arizona, and McCall.
