Join the celebration as Palo Alto Festival of the Arts returns on August 27 & 28 from 10:00AM - 6:00PM along tree-lined University Ave. Meet extraordinary artists offering stunning works of art while browsing 300 displays showcasing eye-catching designs in jewelry, glasswork, sculpture, mixed media, paintings and more at this year’s exciting festival. Annie Quigley of Quigley Ceramics will present her “luminous handcrafted art for the home” at the festival. “Within weeks of first learning how to make pottery on the wheel, I began carving my work with a knife. My skills in both areas grew quickly but I needed to find distinctive patterns and designs for my work. Behold: my travel sketch book! My work is greatly inspired by trips to Europe, New Zealand, Uganda, America's National Parks, and time spent living in tourist destinations: NYC and LA. The natural beauty, architecture, and culture of these destinations have made a big impact on me and on my work. I work out of my home studio in Los Angeles, CA. I make my work on a potter’s wheel and carve the form when the clay is a perfect moisture level. I take hours and hours to smooth over rough edges and to refine each piece. I choose glazes that will play kindly with the negative space and that will be beautiful with the form.” ~ Annie Quigley Discover the exceptional beauty of handcrafted items of art and décor for the home, office and gift giving at the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts, August 27 & 28 from 10:00AM - 6:00PM.
