Professor and ceramic artist Brad Bachmeier will conduct Artist-in-Residencies this May at Makoshika State Park in Montana and Theodore Roosevelt National Park in N.D. Bachmeier helped both parks establish their first AIR-host program. Bachmeier will provide free public programs, demonstrations and workshops entitled “Earth Echoes” at both parks. He will spend his time studying the local clays, geology, history, people, and archeology of the region while creating new works that tell each park’s story. This summer will mark Bachmeier’s 7th Park Artist-in-Residence in 8 years. The ceramic work created in situ will fit into his Conservation Through Clay Series and traveling exhibition slated next for the Bismark Art & Galleries Association, November 1.
