December 2021: Passing it On
Bill Wilson & Apprentices

Most of my life in Western Colorado has been about infusing arts and culture not only into my apprentices but within our community. My studio has always been a place of grounding, centering, and healing for myself and many of those who have worked there. We have shared the creative process as well as many aspects of life and our growth as human beings and members of our communities.

I am honored to be able to share the work of these talented ceramic artists and grateful to the staff at our community art center for hosting our show.

Passing it On, Bill Wilson and Apprentices, exhibits at the Montrose Center for the Arts through December 2021. The Opening Reception is Friday, December 3rd, from 5-7 pm.

When Bill invited the participants for this show to join with him in Passing it On, he asked them to share something personal about their individual emotional, mental, and physical processes as they prepared for this exhibit. You will find some of their responses here, in the San Juan Silver Stage December 2021 issue. You will also find their reflections in notebook, Pass it On, with the exhibit.
