Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Agnes Barton-Sabo, also known as Betty Turbo. Her humorous, vivid illustrations meld advertisements for food and daily necessities with social justice messages and words of encouragement. In our interview we talk about taking up papier-mâché sculpture during the pandemic, design tips she learned while working at Hatch Show Print, and how image making can support social justice movements. To see examples of her work visit www.bettyturbo.com.
On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have Clay Week Open Studio, an international outreach event that celebrates clay, community and creativity. Join us on the weekend of October 9-11, 2020 for a celebration of clay around the world! To keep this year’s open studio safe for all participants we encourage you to move your events to an online format. Virtual demonstrations, lectures, and online sales are just a few ways you can engage your community through Clay Week Open Studios. To sign up today visit www.clayweek.org/openstudio.
