Art, good art, makes people happy, makes them feel good about themselves and opens doors to their soul. Art is about sharing ideas, values and feelings. Art, if it has any value it must build up the souls of the masses.
Kelly Dick graduated from Westminster College with a B.A. degree in Art and English with a secondary teaching certificate. She taught art and English in junior high for 6 years all the while working with clay in her spare time. Since becoming a parent of two children, Kelly has taken a break from teaching and pursued her career in clay full-time, partly because of the flexibility it provides, but mainly because she loves it! Preferring to hand-build her pieces, Kelly enjoys creating both functional and decorative pottery that reflects the natural world. Most recently, she has been experimenting with an old-world technique known as ‘cuerda seca’ in developing her line of “Wall Creatures.”
Her work has been seen at Salt Lake City’s Downtown Farmer’s Market, The Park Silly Sunday Market, Art in Kayenta, The Salt Lake City’s Gallery Stroll at Visage Salon Studios, and a variety of other art markets. Her work is currently featured at the Datura Gallery in Kayenta, UT.
