Since it is feeling a bit like spring here in the desert (what the heck Phil?), and because I know I could use a little lightness and color in my life right now...

Let us introduce this week's Duality of Presence artists! 

Joshua Kosker, Thea Clark, Jessica Anderson, and Nikki Couppee!

Joshua Kosker is an artist currently living and working in western Pennsylvania. As a maker he is interested in how objects shape experiences and, in turn, how actions imprint meaning on the material world. Josh’s research fuses traditional craft practices and unconventional processes – drawing from some of the most humble, discreet, and commonly found materials – to explore universal and sometimes private subject matters in daily life. His work has been exhibited in various group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, and has recently been included in several notable publications such as American Craft Magazine and Shifting Sites, the 2016 Metalsmith Magazine juried “Exhibition in Print”.
