Artist Reception
Friday, November 17, 2017, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Put on your party pants! Union Project is hosting a free artist reception and talk featuring Tim Kowalczyk and his hand-built sculptural and ceramic works. Tim gathers his inspiration from objects that are often discarded or unthought-of. He declares himself, “collector, picker and poet that sculpts, forms, designs and constructs sculptures with sense of purpose, priority, and preciousness.” Notably, you’ll get to see a selection of Tim’s iconic ceramic pieces that appear as though they’re made from cardboard during this one night only exhibit. Light refreshments will be provided. No RSVP required.

Saturday, November 18, 2017, 4:00-8:00pm

Take note - Tim will exhibit his skills in ceramics with a public demonstration. Free and open to the public, this night is your chance to see him in action and learn more about the inspiration behind Tim’s iconic works. No RSVP required.
