The artist will present a new body of work at a regional Minnesota public art gallery, as well as on my artist’s website and Facebook page. The outcome will be a successful, open and accessible exhibition at a public art space or gallery. 2: Holding a public workshop on utilizing local and found materials in ceramics/sculpture. Successful workshop with good attendance from the surrounding community held at a university, college, or art center.
Lisa Truax exhibited her new work in a public, accessible solo exhibition at the Austin Artworks Professional Gallery in the summer of 2015, and engaged the public during the opening. The methods used to assess the degree to which the stated goals of this Project Outcome were that a solo exhibition location was finalized and the exhibition held during the grant period as proposed during the grant application. The attendance at the exhibition was excellent and further opportunities have arisen because of this grant assisted exhibition. 2: A workshop was held at Winona State University on utilizing locally sourced and recycled materials in ceramics that approximately twenty-five people participated in. The evaluation methods used to determine the degree of success of this project were the acquisition of a public place to hold the workshop, workshop attendance, and successful outcomes of the participants in finding and using their own materials with the assistance of Lisa Truax as part of the workshop. The project fully achieved this outcome, as the workshop was held with approximately twenty-five participants.
