This fall, six ceramic artists from across America and one from Australia will join together to work on a collaborative venture at Project Art in Cummington, Massachusetts.
artKamp was envisioned by Vipoo Srivilasa, a Thai born Australian artist who works to promote international interaction between artists through social media and collaborative projects.
Studio Potter Michael McCarthy, will welcome the artists to participate in the firing of his wood-fired kiln. Guest artists who will visit during the final weekend include Sin-ying Ho , Garth Johnson , Ayumi Horie , and Suwanee Natewong . A final dinner during that weekend, by invitation only, will be served on the art installation and in the process celebrate the completion of the project.
