Rinconart Studio and Gallery is pleased to feature Agi Gillespie for Third Saturday Art Walk on Aug. 17. Gillespie’s love for  the endless possibilities of altering forms and changing surfaces results in truly unique pottery pieces.

Gillespie was born, raised and educated  in Germany, and moved to the Santa Barbara area in 1982 with her husband and two children. Her interest in ceramics started in 1999, when she moved to the beautiful Lake Powell area and started photographing the spectacular desert and red rock scenery of the Colorado Plateau. She also took ceramic and pottery classes at the Kanab extension of Saint George Community College for four years.

She loves working with clay and experimenting with a multitude of processes to develop new and unique pieces that have her personal “stamp.” Whether building by hand or throwing on the wheel, Gillespie adds dimension by painting with underglaze colors and glazing and by stamping, cutting and adding decorative cutouts.

“My passion is to achieve harmony of design, composition, function and decoration,” said Gillespie.

Her style continues to evolve as she embraces the local arts community, culture and landscapes, and since moving to El Dorado County she has shown her work at the EDAC ArtSpace and at Art in the Orchard 2012.

She joined Rinconart Gallery in April 2013. Gillespie also teaches introductory classes at the gallery.

The gallery will be offering music and hors d’oeuvres from 6 to 9 p.m. at 440 Main St. in Placerville. Visit the Website for more information at rinconart.com.
