As part of a new suite of programs entitled Saturday Salon Series, HCCC is pleased to invite you to Resident Artist Talks by Anthony Sonnenberg and Lisa Hardaway. The event will take place on Saturday, December 10, at 3:00 PM in the Community Room at HCCC.

Saturday Salon Series explores the process, product, and history of craft through various artist talks, curator-led discussions, and other exciting ways to unpack contemporary craft. Resident Artist Talks allows visitors to discover the artistic process of working craft artists by hearing about their works of art, influences, and favorite materials.  After the talks, attendees are invited to explore the artists’ studios and pose questions.

About Anthony Sonnenberg

Anthony Sonnenberg was born in Graham, TX. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in 2009, and in 2012 he received his MFA from the University of Washington at Seattle. On a societal and personal level, Anthony critiques the cycle of denial and decadence through the lenses of his lifelong struggle with obesity, the timeless veracity of Greek myth, and the excessively ornate Baroque and Rococo aesthetics. Decadence is a by-product of attempting to cope with the fear of uncertainty. Crowns and candlesticks—things made in the moments just before a crash—are the subject of his work. Rather than casting judgments, Anthony seeks to actively engage with and bear witness to the tragic and beautiful nature of this cycle. He will be with HCCC through December, 2016. To learn more about his work, please visit anthonysonnenberg.com.

About Lisa Hardaway

Originally from Manhattan Beach, California, Lisa Hardaway has had an extremely diverse career as a musician, musicologist, photographer, ethnomusicologist, spinner/dyer/weaver and teacher. She has a BMus and MMus in flute performance (1981), and a MMus in historical musicology (1989) from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University. In a similar way that she combined her varied skills as a musician, photographer, and historian in the field of ethnomusicology, Lisa combines traditional American weaving, contemporary English rug-weaving techniques, and Swedish design in her work as a rug weaver. During her residency, she plans to further personalize her work by using images from her photographic archive and natural objects of significance. She will be with HCCC through May, 2017. To learn more about her work, stop by her studio on your next visit to HCCC.
